I had a priest visit my city the other day, and he says Mass in both the OF and the EF. We got into talking about all kinds of stuff, including my Anglican past and the Personal Ordinariate. Eventually, things turned to the Anglican Use and we had some confusion, so I thought I’d ask your help.
From what I know, there are two “Forms” of the Roman “Rite”: The Ordinary, and the Extraordinary. Now there is also the Anglican “Use”, but it is not a “Form” nor a separate “Rite”. What exactly is its relation to the Roman Rite and its two “Forms”?
We were hesitant to say there are three “forms” of the Roman Rite, but we weren’t quite sure about the meaning of the term “Use” in relation to “Form” and “Rite” either.
Can someone help?
