Some good news

In contrast to the clear triumph of revisionism in the Scottish Episcopal Church, some good news about the survival of orthodox Anglican patrimony north of the border: the website of the Ordinariate in Scotland is here 

Thanks to Fr Ray Blake's blog  for this video of Fr Aidan Nichols O.P. speaking about the future of the Catholic Church south of the border.. He has some important things to say which concern all of us, not least about the 'unfashionable' and, as he says, quoting Shaw, the 'unreasonable' precept of the 'Conversion of England' to the Catholic faith, something of concern to Anglo-Catholics too, wherever we may find ourselves ecclesially. 

For all who have an interest in Anglican liturgies, and who are less than enamoured of recent 'official' Anglican developments, there has been an announcement of the forthcoming publication of  some (interim?) Ordinariate liturgy, the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham, edited by Mgr Andrew Burnham and Fr Aidan Nichols [here] - it would seem from Mgr Burnham's description to be a convincing response to those observers, both friendly and unfriendly, who have expressed views that the Ordinariate seemed insufficiently conscious of  traditional Anglican liturgical patrimony.
