Book Description

27 May 2013
When in 1993 Aidan Nichols revived the long-dormant idea of an Anglican Uniate Church, united with the See of Peter but not absorbed, the reaction of many was incredulity. The ideal of modern Ecumenism was, surely, the corporate reunification of entire Communions. This he roundly declared to be unrealistic, for the Protestant and Liberal elements in Anglican history (and Anglicanism's present reality) could never be digested by Roman stomachs. What was feasible was, rather, the reconciliation of a select body Catholic enough to be united, and Anglican enough not to be absorbed. Just over a dozen years later Pope Benedict XVI, responding to the petitions of various Anglican bishops, promulgated the Apostolic Constitution Apostolorum coetibus and the deed was done. The three 'Ordinariates' now established for 'Catholics of the Anglican Patrimony' in Britain, Australia and North America have been described as the first tangible fruit of Catholic Ecumenism. In this short book Nichols reflects on the historical, theological, and liturgical issues involved. He also shows the congruence of the new development with Benedict's wider thinking, and outlines a specific missionary vocation for reconciled Anglicans in England.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for Catholics - and Anglicans? 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Fr Nichols book (82 pages, so more an extended pamphlet rather than a book) is a useful guide to explain where the Ordinariate is coming from and its mission in the future. The historical background is sketched in (with footnotes and citations); the theology involved and the distinctively Anglican liturgy that is brought with it. The Ordinariate should bring an improved formation of the laity and clergy. Two quibbles which tripped me up a number of times: the Holy Father appears to be Benedict XVI (there is no mention of Pope Francis); and bad proof-reading, the most egregious being Thomas for Thames! And many prepositions missing. On the whole a useful summation of the current situation of the Ordinariate.

A good and much wanted book, well set out and easily followed. I now would like to see at least the canon to go with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's a little Gem of an Introduction! 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Once again Aidan Nichols has done us all a service in the production of this lucid and compact history of the Ordinariate and what it means in the context of Anglican/Catholic relations in this country. It is a natural and entirely apposite progression from where he left off in his previous book 'The Panter and the Hind' published in the late 1990s, bringing a complex and controversial topic up-to-date. It shows how Anglicans and Catholics can come together in a way that allows each to fully share the many riches of their respective traditions, to their mutual advantage and announces a new chapter in the story of the Catholic Church in this country and a fresh opportunity for an enriched eucumenical dialogue. Fr Nichols makes what for many may seem difficult both exciting and much easier to grasp than might have been the case if the work had been undertaken by someone else with a poorer knowledge of Anglicanism and less appreciation of its rich history and traditions. In short, it is gem of an introduction and not to be missed.
