Ex Fide Henrici Fynes Clinton

Look at the admirable blog Ex Fide for pictures and a thumbnail sketch of the Palm Sunday Liturgy as it was before Pius XII's lackey Hannibal Bugnini, as his first experiment in liturgical wrecking, messed Holy Week up. This blog comes from the London church of S Magnus the Martyr, long the lair of the great, aristocratic, archpapalist Fr H J Fynes Clinton. I suppose this blog may have more such pictures as Holy Week continues. Give NLM and Fr Zed a break and spend Holy Week blogwise among the Anglican Catholics.

Haec omnia gratia amici nostri benevoli Rubricarii.

Dear Father,

You might be interested to know that I have recently acquired (quite by accident) the 1912 Missale Anglicanum which belonged to Fr Fynes Clinton and was actually used at St Magnus. It is fascinating volume, not least for the many notes and interpolations, including the Missale Romanum ordninary of the mass which was inserted into the position where later English Missals printed the Latin. It certainly reveals a great deal about the liturgy there in his time.

Super. I'd love to see it some time.

Perhaps, in your testamentary dispositions, you could leave it to the Pusey House Library?

Erm, I think Fr Anthony will be wanting to leave the Missal with in its original "lair"....
