Do the words of administration forma correspond to the conditions for validity, as requested by the Catholic Church? The Anaphora of Addai and Mari was used in the Eucharist. But we turned to the computer, called up a few websites, and confirmed that, sure enough, it was true.

Pray for me, my fathers, brethren, and masters, that God may grant unto me the capability and power to perform this service to which I have drawn near, and that this oblation may be accepted from the hands of my weakness, for myself, for you, and for the whole body of the Holy Catholic Church, through His grace and mercies for ever.

Catholic canon law excludes participation by Catholics in the Eucharistic services of Christian communities whose services it considers invalid and liturgh participation by members of such communities in the Catholic Eucharist only in very exceptional circumstances and only if the individual members in question hold the same belief as the Catholic Church concerning the Eucharist; [16] but in the case of Churches whose Eucharistic services it considers valid it allows such participation much more easily.

Although the words of Jesus’ discourse are not recited, they are expressly referenced in or prayer, which claims to act in accordance with our Lord’s command to commemorate His sacrifice. The Assyrian Church of the East also uses two other Eucharistic Anaphoras, which are some centuries more recent: It is likely that Dix had Addai and Mari in mind when he wrote this, though that anaphora is not mentioned explicitly in his letter.

Yes, it is beautiful.

Secondly, the Church of the East has otherwise preserved the orthodox faith in regard to the Eucharist and Holy Orders.

When necessity requires, Assyrian faithful are permitted to participate and to receive Holy Communion in a Chaldean litutgy of the Holy Eucharist; in the same way, Chaldean faithful for whom it is physically or morally impossible to approach a Catholic minister, are permitted to participate and to receive Holy Communion in an Assyrian celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

If Thou wert to mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

Consecration in the Anaphora of Addai & Mari

The Pontifical Council did not specify which of these words of Institution are absolutely essential to complete the consecration. And with these heavenly hosts we give thanks to thee, o my Lord, even we thy servants weak and frail and miserable, for that thou hast given us great grace past recompense in that thou didst put on our manhood that thou mightest quicken it by thy godhead, and hast exalted our low estate and restored our fall and raised our mortality and forgiven our trespasses and justified our sinfulness and enlightened our knowledge and, o our Lord and our God, hast condemned our enemies and granted victory to the weakness of our frail nature in the overflowing mercies of thy grace.

And may Thy Holy Spirit come, O Lord, and rest upon this oblation of Thy servants which they offer, and bless and sanctify it; and may it be unto us, O Lord, for the propitiation of our offences and the forgiveness of our sins, and for a grand hope of resurrection from the dead, and for a new life in the kingdom of the heavens, with all who have been pleasing before Him.
