Whispers reports:

"Pro multis" = "For many" = "Done Deal."

Get ready.
One does wonder if this portends any greater changes in the nearby offing or if it is merely a one-time change that anyone who has read works by the then-Ratzinger would have expected. Interesting times do we live in...

Update: Jimmy Akin points us to a CWN article which also says this is a done deal and the letter has already been sent from Cdl. Arinze to the heads of the Bishops' Conferences. He also gives a nice explanation of why people care about this little two-word translation.
