Note about the sign language in 'Signs of God' lectionaries.

The video clips recorded are to assist Deaf people and others who are involved with the readings at Mass in the UK. It is not truly British Sign Language as such (which has it own linguistic principles); people read the ‘Signs of God’ lectionaries which is printed in English and the video clips are to enable them to read, prepare and sign the readings. However, important BSL principles such as placements and facial expressions can be used as much as possible which will greatly clarify the meaning and content of the messages in the readings.

For biblical quotes we use Revised New Jerusalem Bible.
