I mentioned using the Collect for the 21st Sunday After Trinity (pg. 218) in the place of the Declaration of Absolution: GRANT, we beseech thee, merciful Lord, to thy faithful people pardon and peace: that they may be cleansed from all their sins, and serve thee with a quiet mind. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN

June 9 - The Book of Common Prayer

This day in Tudor history, 9th June 1549, was a big day for the English Reformation. It was on this day, at Whitsun services all around England, that Archbishop Thomas Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer was used for the very first time. A service in English!

In today's video, Claire Ridgway, author of On This Day in Tudor History, explains a bit more about this book and why this day was so important.

The Middle Way | Episode 8: The Book of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer is part of the identity of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. In this video, Father Eric briefly explores the significance of this historic book and why Episcopalians are referred to as people of a book.

THE MIDDLE WAY is an ongoing video series and ministry of St. Catherine's Episcopal Church in Chelsea, Alabama. The purpose of this series is to provide short, informative videos for people who are new or unfamiliar with the Episcopal Church and to be in conversation with those who might have questions about our tradition. We invite you to join us on this journey. FOLLOW US on Facebook, and SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for future videos.

Archbishop Cranmer and the Prayerbook Tradition

Living peacefully in a communion of diverse Anglicans can be difficult. However Anglicans will always have something in common so long as they continue in common prayer.

What Is the Book of Common Prayer?


What's wrong with the 2019 Prayer Book?

Father Timothy Matkin examines the issue of the fatal flaw with the 2019 Book of Common Prayer of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). A rubric in the additional directions for the Holy Eucharist (page 141) allows excess consecrated wine to be poured out rather than consumed.

Father Matkin explains why this is a common misconception about the way the sacrament should be handled, but outside the tradition and even a sacrilege.

Please urge your bishop and delegation to vote against adoption of the proposed Prayer Book unless and until the rubric is corrected.

The proposed 2019 Book Common Prayer can be accessed online at the ACNA website.

I have a blog post with additional information, the rubrical history and frequently asked questions:

A How to/Walk-through of the Anglican Evening Daily Office: Book of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer contains a wealth of beautiful prayers, and a worshipful liturgy to add Scripture and Psalms to your daily routine. This is a walk-through of the Evening Prayer (Rite I) service found in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

This is the first of several videos that will introduce viewers to the Daily Office. Specifically, Evening Prayer is the focus of this video. You'll learn about the four main sections (opening, invitatory and psalms, lessons, and prayers) and the overall structure of the prayer service.

This is a bird's eye view, and we expect that there will be questions that we will answer in the future videos. In fact, we think that this video might spark the following questions:

How do I find today's readings in the lectionary?
I notice that people cross themselves or bow at specific parts—at what point should I add these things?
How do I say MORNING prayer?

Don't worry—we'll cover these very soon!

1789 Book of Common Prayer Eucharist with Commentary

Utilizing the 1789 BCP, Fr. Lewis leads discussion about the development of liturgy from 1789-1928. Discussion follows the celebration. (This liturgy is on the fourth Sunday of Lent. While eucharistic vestments would not have been used when the 1789 BCP first debuted, they would certainly have been worn as the church ended its use of the 1789 and began using the 1892.)

A Celebration of Holy Eucharist according to the 1549 Book of Common Prayer

In this series, Fr. Lewis utilizes the 1549 BCP as the opening of a series of lenten liturgies that can teach us about how Anglicans have worshipped and believed for 500 years. The commentary at the end of this liturgy unpacks the complexity of the times and practice of English churches in the 16th Century.
