Anglican ordinariates will advance liturgical 'reform of the reform'

April 07, 2011

Shawn Tribe of the New Liturgical Movement predicts that the new Anglican ordinariates will have a positive impact on the reform of the liturgy in the broader Catholic Church:

What I am suggesting is that I believe the potential exists for it to contribute to the broader conversation going on within the Church about the sacred liturgy, particularly in the light of certain, oft-discussed points of Sacrosanctum Concilium. To be clear, it is not that I believe these potentialities and aspects are absent from the conversation without the Ordinariate, but rather that the Ordinariate, bringing with it its own lived experience, history and "culture", brings another and additional dimension to the conversation; a dimension that, importantly, will be a lived one and will be able to be referred to and consulted equally by Catholics within and without the Ordinariate.
