In response to "mass", written by Laura W on July 04, 1998 at 14:47:02
] Well, I have attended Sunday service at an Anglican church in Manhattan and I assure you it was in every way what Catholics call a "mass."
The Book of Common Prayer makes a point of the differences between Communion and the Catholic Mass, but to get into that I think is beyond the scope of this board, especially since the question was relating to the modern Church of England Service and Nuptial Masses.If you want to discuss this with someone, Laura, I can quote the Book of Common Prayer to you by e-mail:-)
] And, for further clarification, you will have to define "Reformation" in your sentence, above; Henry VII attended what he called "mass" after his break with Rome, I think even in Latin
I'll believe you! Again , for your info, The Book of Common Prayer which lays all this stuff out, was put together in 1571, so blame Elizabeth I, not Edward. This book remained largely unchanged until modern times,and wasn't affected much by the Commonwealth- all they did was strip away the tradtional frills which were not part of the services laid down in the said Prayerbook. But again, we are rather off-topic, and had best discuss this on our own.
- thanks for the info! nf argument! Laura W 21:51:48 7/12/98 (0)
