Liturgical Guidelines for the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham

Original Document:

I have been somewhat fascinated by the Anglican Use via the Pastoral Provision and the Anglican Ordinariates for some time now.  Mostly, I suppose, because I see it as many of the things liturgically that the OF of the Mass could have been.  So, when I saw that the guidelines for liturgy had come out related to this, I figured I would share the links.  After a quick glance through, I find it interesting that Rite One which retains the use of the more archaic English is allowed to be used, but Rite Two which contains the more modern English is not.  I am also delighted to see the restoration of the Propers, etc. during Mass rather than sole reliance on hymns, which seems to be common within the Ordinariate/Anglican Use.  The hymns used tend to be very beautiful, but seeing the Propers restored to their rightful place in the Mass is a wonderful thing to see. 

I am heartened that the modern language is forbidden.  That's a good sign.

Glorious music.  Thank you very much for sharing that!

Ironically, this is what I expected when I first started going to a Catholic Church.  I was in many music ensembles growing up and our Choir director in HS and College loved this type of music, so we sang a ton of it.  I always identified this music with being Catholic and was surprised that I didn't hear more of it when I started attending Mass.

I have considered more than once in recent months moving to an area where there is an Ordinariate or Pastoral Provision parish.  I've had my eye on Our Lady of Atonement in San Antonio for some time now. 
double post.  Sorry.
