This is a daily prayer book for the Ordinariate - those former Anglicans who have recently become a distinct part of the Roman Catholic Church. In creating the Ordinariate, Pope Benedict recognised the treasures that Anglicans brought with them from their own tradition and this book is replete with the riches of Anglican patrimony. It contains material from the Anglican tradition, adapted according to the Roman rite including: * an order for morning, evening and night prayer throughout the year * spiritual readings for the Christian year * the minor offices * calendar and lectionary tables For use throughout the English speaking world, this unique volume will fill an immediate need.
Monsignor Andrew Burnham is a priest in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and Assistant to its Ordinary. He has responsibility for the Ordinariate's liturgical provisions. Aidan Nichols OP is an Affiliated Lecturer in the University of Cambridge and a Catholic priest.
