My understanding is that when this translation was done, Catholic Biblical scholars were still under canon law which told them how to translate certain passages, no matter what new knowledge and more recently discovered manuscripts might say. So I wouldn't use this translation if I was going for accuracy. However, if you want the Psalms to sing and you want to call the Hebrew God by his name, this is the Bible for you.
