From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ICEL Psalter is a 20th century translation of the Book of Psalms, translated by the International Commission on English in the Liturgy, usually known as ICEL. The Psalter was Published by Liturgical Training Publications in 1995 with the imprimatur of William Cardinal Keeler. The approval of Keeler, the president of the USCCB paved the way for its use in Roman Catholic Liturgy.

Because of controversies surrounding ICEL's use of dynamic equivalence and gender-inclusive language, by order of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict XVI, the imprimatur was revoked in 1998 by Bishop Anthony M. Pilla.
