From blog correspondent Samer al-Batal
The Catholic faith

RIP Michael Davies
Requiem æternam dona ei, Domine; et lux perpetua luceat ei.

S al-B: Michael Davies was dying of cancer. [I remember reading that.] Perhaps it was an act of mercy from God that a heart attack cut his suffering short.

You can buy Cranmer's Godly Order, his excellent history of the English 'Reformation', through the links at the bottom of this page. This Welsh lay soldier of the church also saw through the 'Vatican II made the Roman Rite more like the Christian East' nonsense the liturgists and RC 'neocons' sometimes claim:

Sufficient emphasis has not been given to the fact that much of what Rome now demands for a satisfactory (sic) celebration of the Eucharist is in fact a harsh and even offensive condemnation of the practice of Eastern Christians.
A tacked-on epiklesis and a token deacon in the sanctuary don't change that.
