Can the Bible be, for Christians, that kind of authority? Not only do I think it can, but I think that is precisely the way that received scriptures were treated for much of the history of Judaism and Christianity
The German Mass and Order of Worship of 1526 the heretic Martin Luther (via occident)
Nope, sorry, Luther. The priest isn’t Jesus. The whole congregation, priest included, should face Jesus (i.e East).

Let’s see if we can overload responses with Anglo-Catholics :P
novangla asked: I'm looking for ones I don't automatically know the answer to... 9, 10, 14?
9. The collect that Anglo-Catholics use for Benediction (also Prayer #67 in the “Prayers and Thanksgivings” portion of the BCP 1972):
O Lord Jesus Christ, who in a wonderful Sacrament hast left
unto us a memorial of thy passion: Grant us, we beseech
thee, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of thy Body and
Blood, that we may ever perceive within ourselves the fruit of
thy redemption; who livest and reignest with the Father and
the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
14. Trick question? The form that’s in Rite I (p. 328-330). Mostly because it doesn’t have a whole lot of room for long-winded prayers for everything in the world that’s happening, which tend to make the Prayers of the People incredibly drawn out, yet also retains space for local petitions.

But in truth, you who are very truth, you know me well and can testify that I write this for the love of your love, my Lord, my most dear Jesus.
I want your love to burn in me as you command so that I may desire to love you alone and sacrifice to you a troubled spirit, ‘a broken and a contrite heart’.
Give me, O Lord, in this exile, the bread of tears and sorrow for which I hunger more than for any choice delights.
Hear me, for your love, and for the dear merits of your beloved Mary, and your blessed Mother, the greater Mary.
Redeemer, my good Jesus, do not despise the prayers of one who has sinned against you but strengthen the efforts of a weakling that loves you.
Shake my heart out of its indolence, Lord, and in the ardour of your love bring me to the everlasting sight of your glory where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, God, for ever. Amen."
— St. Anselm of Canterbury

why does it remind me of Benedict Cumberbatch?
Because those are his eyes, lips, and chin?
I generally agree with this sentiment, but this is factually inaccurate. The government doesn’t say that it’s illegal to consume raw milk, compost-grown tomatoes, and Aunt Matilda’s pickles (depending on if she used illegal substances in them, that is). What the government does is prohibit the SALE of these items because their freshness and lack of disease is difficult to ascertain.
That’s Ezekiel Gilbert. He was acquitted yesterday in the murder of Lenora Ivie Frago, who had taken $150 from Gilbert for sex and then refused to have sex with him or give…
