Useful for Catholics - and Anglicans?, 22 Aug 2013
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.
