We attended a service a couple of years ago, where her mom and dad renewed their wedding vows. I do remember a book of prayer being used throughout the service. A lot of the sacraments from that book were all in the Book Of Common Prayer. I believe the title of the book said "book of prayer', so I took it as the same book the Episcopal Church used. The Holy Eucharist and the Nicene Creed sure sounded the same.
And just for clarification, I was not blaming the heretical teachings of the Catholic Church on the Book Of Common Prayer, just the absence of the Bible. I believe any church has made a grave mistake when they replace the authoritative Word of God, the Bible, with a book written by man. Psalm 138: 2, David writes that God has magnified His Word above His Name. I believe we should do the same.
i have no idea what mass you have been to where the bible is not used at all. every sunday when i go to mass there is a reading from the old testament, new testament and gospel.
