But that's probably a ways off.


Imagine a Baptist or Pentecostal Ordinariate.   

You mean this?

Are you saying Catholic charismatics are like Baptists or Pentecostals?

I laughed, because as a former Anglican I can tell you that he is more right than most can imagine. And while it may seem on the surface to be a sort of superficial notion on which to create an Ordinariate, I can tell you it is profound.

I don't see it as superficial at all.  Why would we not wish to use good taste when doing things for God?  Traditional Catholics have been consistent in saying that beauty and propriety are important considerations for things such as the liturgy, Church structures, music, etc.  I see that as matching up with the idea of "good taste" quite well. 

The new Rite of the Mass for the Ordinariates has been celebrated publicly fort the first time.  According to an Ordinariate priest I converse with, it is actually more traditional than what is currently used by Anglican-Use parishes in the BDW.  If that is true, it should be a lovely adaptation of the Mass in English.  I pray that Pope Benedict's vision of bringing this tradition into the Church goes smoothly and has long lasting effects when it comes to liturgy throughout the universal Church.  We could all do with a bit of "good taste" I believe.
