It presents an inclusive, non-hierarchical, and gentle Christianity, gathered from several worshipping communities in the Celtic and Anglican tradition. The liturgies contained herein are presented for the guidance and convenience of the congregation, but their use is suggested only, not required. Members may revise and amend them as it seems good to them to do so. There are two special features in this Missal. First is the offering of rites for the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion by family members or individuals at home or elsewhere. It is the duty of the Church to teach and encourage the faithful in the celebration of this Sacrament, the hearth being the oldest of altars, and the leaders of households being the earliest priests. It is reasonable for a Christian to celebrate as an individual, being always in the presence of angels, archangels, and all the company of heaven, and therefore never alone. Secondly, different Eucharistic Prayers are offered for each of the liturgical seasons, honoring the many Eucharist Meals found in Scripture and Tradition, and providing a much broader and deeper understanding of the Eucharist than does the image of the last Supper used alone. Anyone who wishes may use or adapt the forms found herein.
