Encyclopedia > Anglican Use

The Anglican Use is an adaptation or usage of the liturgy of the Catholic Roman Rite that is used by some formerly Anglican ecclesial communities that submitted to the authority of the Roman Pontiff. Local Anglican (or Episcopalian) communities that submitted communally were permitted to retain certain differences of liturgy derived from the Book of Common Prayer, once it had been edited to remove Protestant influences. Latin Rite, in the singular and accompanied, in English, by the definite article, refers to the sui juris particular Church of the Roman Catholic Church that developed in the area of western Europe and northern Africa where Latin was for many centuries the language of education and culture. ... The term Anglican describes those people and churches following the religious traditions of the Church of England, especially following the Reformation. ... The word Episcopal is derived from the Greek επισκοπος epískopos, which literally means overseer; the word however is used in religious terms to mean bishop. ... The Book of Common Prayer[1] is the prayer book of the Church of England and also the name for similar books used in other churches in the Anglican Communion. ...

The adapted liturgy of the Anglican Use is contained in the Book of Divine Worship. In addition to the adapted liturgy, an additional Pastoral Provision allowed Anglican and some other Protestant clergy who joined the Roman Catholic Church to be ordained priests for the Catholic Church despite having been married. The permission to celebrate the Anglican Use and the Pastoral Provision are not neccesarily linked. The Book of Divine Worship is an adaptation of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) published in in 2003. ... The Pastoral Provision has allowed the establishment of several Anglican Use Catholic parishes within the United States. ...

The Anglican Communion is a world-wide organization of Anglican Churches. ... Full communion is a kind of relationship between two or more organizations of Christians. ...
