Is it okay to use the Anglican Book of Common Prayer?


Full Question

As a former Anglican (Reformed Episcopal Church) and now a Catholic, is it okay for me to use the Book of Common Prayer (either the 1928 edition and/or the 1979 American edition) for daily morning and evening prayer?

Answer

A: There is now a Catholic edition of the Book of Common Prayer, specifically published for those of the Anglican tradition. It is called the Book of Divine Worship and includes the daily offices and the Mass. Go to http://bookofdivineworship.com for more information. You will see other links that will be helpful, including congregations and parishes of Anglican Use.
