Be England thy dowry as in days of yore
An ex-voto in thanksgiving for the excellent news received today. The reintegration of the Anglo-Catholics into the heart of Mother Church will no doubt do much to bring a more "High-Church" liturgical ethos back and promote the furtherance of the Ratzinger Revolution. I am quite happy for the return of any liturgical traditionalist back into the fold, and I certainly hope that the beautiful Tudor prose and stunning choirs of the Anglican tradition will do much to enrich our fair Mother Church just as the Eastern Divine Liturgies said by those Churches in union with us have. I especially hope that the influence of this will be felt in the vernacular practice of the OF Roman Rite throughout the Anglophone world.
