Anglican Use Office
#1
Isn't there a shortened office for the Anglican Use?

Where can I get one?  Not the mass, but the Offices.

I treasured the Office as an Anglican, and they're shorter than a breviary, so the prayers were manageable. 

I'd like an approved Catholic edition, particularly for the collects.

'The Book of Divine Worship' did contain the Daily Offices, but as of 1 January 2016, it is no longer 'official' for public worship.

However, whilst you wait for Rome to approve new Daily Offices, check out this site: http://bookofhours.org/

Based on the 1979 U.S. Book of Common Prayer of The Episcopal Church, it was never used except in the United States. When the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter was established in 2012, use of the BDW was phased out.

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter has developed a new edition of The Divine Office which, although it uses some elements of the 1979 BCP, is more closely aligned to the 1928 and 1662 books. It has been submitted to the Vatican for approval. While advance copies of the full divine office are not available, the website prayer.covert.org implements a very close approximation to the proposal, and will be kept up to date as the approval process continues

This Office appears to be a combination of Rite I and the 1928 BCP. Interestingly, it mirrors exactly in its outline the Office I put together on my own as an Anglican which was also a combination of Rite 1 and the 1928 BCP.

I did that on my own because there were some elements of Rite I that I liked or that had Catholic elements. It appears the Church in putting together these Offices had the same idea of what it should look like.

I'm so glad the old style English was maintained!

Does anyone know whether these psalms are from the Hebrew or Greek? I have a Coverdale psalter adapted to the Septuagint that I tend to use for traditional reasons, though I'm partial to the Hebrew psalms.

There's also this for the Ordinariate, although I don't know exactly what it includes.

It's not short but Lancelot Andrewes Press puts out both Monastic Matins and a Diurnal that has separate Collects for Anglican use on some days.  Since it's pre  '62 it's way more robust and traditional than the Farnborough Monastic Diurnal. I still have the Matins although I no longer use it, and I've heard great things about the Diurnal. Not sure this is what you're looking for but it was used by Anglicans and some amongst the fringe and tragic "Western Rite" Orthodox.

"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon
