Roman Catholics can learn from the Anglican communion. In this day and age where the everyday Catholic Parish (at least ours) is bending over backwards to embrace ecumenism, dumbing down our long held beliefs in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar and in our Marian dogmas out of fear of offending, I see that the Anglican communion, here in Ireland, has just published a new edition of the Book of Common Prayer.
In it they have decided to retain their long standing description of the Mass as "blasphemous fables and dangerous deceits."
The Catholic teaching of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is also rejected.
Why? The revision committee desired that this book, like previous editions of it should properly articulate and embody the Church’s faith.
If we were so convinced of the principles of our faith a lot of the error, confusion and carlessness that floats around the everyday Catholic Parish would cease to exist.
