We’re pleased to announce that the latest issue of Shared Treasure (née Anglican Embers) is being sent out within the next few days. This will be Volume IV, No. 9, and it contains some important pieces, including some news that the Society is announcing about an upcoming conference.
The biggest piece in the issue, and certainly the most important, is the latest paper written by Professor Hans-Jürgen Feulner, who was a key member of the Anglicanae Traditiones Inter-dicasterial Commission that the Holy See established a few years ago to produce the liturgical books of Divine Worship that are used by the Ordinariates. Dr Feulner takes a look at the establishment of Divine Worship: The Missal and examines its inner structure and character, while raising some fascinating possibilities for future developments of the Catholic Church’s Anglican patrimonial liturgy.
This new issue also includes excerpts from the writings of John Keble and J. R. R. Tolkien on the Annunciation. There is news included from both the Ordinariates and the Society, an analysis of the latest revision made by the Holy See to the Complementary Norms governing the life of the Ordinariates, and the latest installment of the Rev. W. Chave McCracken’s 1959 analysis of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s Left Hand (or the Religious Symbolism of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).
This latest issue has been sent out electronically to Society members and is available to them for download on the Society website. Hard copies are being mailed to journal subscribers and should arrive soon.
The work that goes into producing the Society’s Journal depends on the support of Society supporters, and for their support we are most grateful. We’re excited to get our copies!
