Some people don’t understand the symbolism this posture conveys, so they think the priest is “turning his back to them” in a gesture of rudeness. This is one of the features of the DWM that makes it look a lot like the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM). All of them retained Sacred English well into the middle 1900s, long after the Anglophone world had dropped its use in everyday speech. [53] The ordinariates integrate these groups in such ways as "to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church, as a precious gift nourishing the faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared",[28][54][55] is part of "the Latin Rite, within the full communion of the Catholic Church and professes all that church's doctrine on faith and morals."[28][29][56]. The Divine Worship Mass (DWM) keeps this tradition too, according to traditional Anglican custom used for centuries. It is the first diocese of its kind in North America. There is no need to learn Latin responses, or follow carefully in a Latin-English Missal, as one needs to do in a TLM. The ordinary of each ordinariate, who may be either a bishop or a priest, chosen on the basis of a terna of names presented by the governing council of the ordinariate,[120] is canonically equivalent to a diocesan bishop and an ex officio member of the respective episcopal conference.,[121], An ordinariate shall have a governing council composed of at least six priests[81] and chaired by the ordinary, that exercise the combined functions of the Presbyteral Council and the College of Consultors of a diocese.

[155] Of the ordinariates for the faithful of eastern rite, four (in Argentina, Brazil, France and Poland) are generically for all Eastern Catholics who lack an ordinary of their own rite with jurisdiction for the particular country and who are therefore entrusted to the care of a Latin archbishop in the country.

The first personal ordinariate for former Anglicans, the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, was established on 15 January 2011,[88] with Keith Newton appointed as the first ordinary. Nevertheless, the reason why Ordinariate parishes use this format is because it’s nearly identical to what Anglicans had already been doing for a very long time.

During this visit, the ordinary presents a report on the status of his ordinariate to the Pope through the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and in consultation with the Congregation for Bishops and the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. [82] The retired bishops were Edwin Barnes, formerly of Richborough, and David Silk, formerly of Ballarat in Australia and an honorary assistant bishop in the Diocese of Exeter. To be ascribed to the Latin Church (e.g. What makes it unique is that because the liturgy is celebrated in English, and the format is virtually identical to a NOM, the average Catholic can slip right in to this traditional form of liturgy and feel right at home within a matter of minutes. Sacred English uses a different case for second-person, singular pronouns (thee, thy, thine, & thou), and different suffixes for verbs in the second person, singular, present tense (-st, -est) and the third person, singular, present tense (-th, -eth).

However, these parishes are not limited to former Anglicans. A national Australian ordinariate festival was held in February 2011 at Coomera in Queensland. A third reason might be a Catholic who’s an Anglophile, meaning he/she loves all things related to English and England.
