Anglican Ordinariates get new Liturgical Texts
The Vatican has given its approval to the Funeral and Marriage Rites to be used in the Personal Ordinariates for former anglicans of the UK, USA and Australia. The texts are based on the Book of Common Prayer. The ritual used at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton (now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) last year was beautifully rich in language and content. Perhaps there will be a "mutual enrichment" of the rites currently in use in the English speaking world and these newly approved rites?
