    Re: Liturgical books for Anglican usage. Only Cranmerian English? Some of the current Anglican liturgical books have a dignified modern English,which should also certainly be included in books for the Anglican usage. Its quality is a certainly higher than that of the English in the Roman Missal,3rd edition. And why not use Cranmer’s beautiful Eucharistic prayer wiht a Catholic understanding? If Addai and Mari is acceptable, Cranmer’s text at least has the Words os Institution,as well as an Epiclesis.
