Patrick, is he commemorated by the Roman Catholic Church too? or only the Church of England?
Individual Roman Catholics remember King Charles and his martyrdom but I expect the demographic is mostly ex-Anglicans and a few "eccentrics," here and there. As such, Charles King and Martyr has no official status within the Roman Catholic church.I know someone who is a traditionalist Roman Catholic who writes articles for SKCM. But most traditionalists I have met despise Charles I. They do so for two reasons; 1, he was an Anglican ("Patrimony" and the Ordinariates notwithstanding) and died in schism with Rome (sanctity cannot exist outside the periphery of Rome's communion, can it?); and 2, he allegedly carried out persecutions of Papist priests in the realm.
I feel such an inculte! I did search and the wiki page for Saint Charles gave me a king Charles the first under "Saints from the catholique Church".Maybe I should try to search in English...
I'm a Catholic convert and I honour King Charles the Martyr. I pray to him every Sunday evening.I'm probably not much of a traditionalist Catholic.
Don't advertise it! You'll get riff-raff there
I think we can be fairly certain Libby will not be making an appearance.
Charles is not allowed by the management to be considered Anglican patrimony and is therefore especially not commemorated in the Ordinariate. The patrimony is not allowed to include the Authorized Version either.
Sad. All those lovely things. Still, the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham at least maintains much of what is great in the Prayer Book tradition. Just a shame they didn't use the Douay-Rheims if the KJV was so unacceptable for whatever reason.
In my opinion, the Douay translation is inferior to Ronald Knox's (which benefits from rigorous consultation of Hebrew and Greek texts).
The Challoner revision is awful but the original Rheimish bible is supposed to be good. I've never read it, though.
