From a reader:
With all the hullabaloo in the past with bishops not allowing priests to offer the EF Mass, I’m wondering if Latin Rite priests are allowed to celebrate the Anglican Rite in an Anglican Use Ordinary?
I consulted with a priest of the Ordinariate in England. Hey responded that, yes, a garden-variety priest of the Latin Rite could use the Anglican form.
I posed in the question in the context of substituting for an Ordinariate priest, rather than the garden-variety guy wanting to use the Anglican form at his garden-variety parish.
However, if Father would not be able to do a proper job of it, perhaps the people would be patient were he to use the Missale Romanum.
Benedict XVI was the Pope of Christian Unity.
A priest from the US Ordinariate wrote (edited):
Can a regular Latin Rite priest use the Anglican Use? At least here in the US, the answer is: not without permission of the priest’s Ordinary. Just as I would not presume to celebrate the Dominican Mass without permission, a diocesan priest really should not be using the Anglican Use. Should a priest be asked to fill in at a local Anglican Use parish, and if he has not received permission to use the Anglican Use, then he should use the Roman Missal, which is in fact a liturgical use also proper to the Ordinariate.
