For years, sensible people have been asking me about the possibility of buying a 'study copy' of Divine Worship the Missal. I have always passed on your requests. Now the (British) Catholic Truth Society(CTS) have come up to the mark. It is a limited run.
I hope this will lead to renewed interest in a very worthwhile initiative. It is absolutely the to-die-for liturgy for those who want a vernacular Catholic liturgy in the 'tudor' liturgical English dialect of Anglican public worship.
Don't be put off by the fact that it rather shamefacedly permits the ultra-short Eucharistic Prayer to be optionally used on some weekdays. The Roman Canon is clearly presented as our normative Eucharistic Prayer.

I am immensely grateful for the advance notice, Father, and have already pre-ordered a copy. I am not convinced that a 'limited run' will satisfy all those who might be interested!
With Martin Travers illustrations I believe.
Cardinal Cupich up to further mischief. Like the Pope he is rigging the membership of his conferences.
The page-count is stated on the CTS website to be the same (1086pp) as the larger edition, so I would infer that it is identical but scaled-down.
I notice in my intercessions book that today (14 Feb) is the 'year's mind' of the great Dr Mascall. I imagine that, on the other side of the veil, he is rejoicing greatly in the work and witness of the Ordinariate...
Just ordered mine from the C.T.S today.
£65! Not surprised it will be a limited edition. At that price it is hardly going to widen the audience for the Ordinariate Rite. Which is, sadly, a lost opportunity.
