Bl. John Henry Newman on the Book of Common Prayer

One cannot hope but that the Anglican Prayer Book with its Psalter and Catholic prayers, even though these, in the translation, have passed through heretical intellects, may retain so much of its old virtue as to co-operate with divine grace in the instruction and salvation of a large remnant.

Indeed. Though the Book of the Common Prayer was the work of Protestants, it contained in the daily offices of morning and evening prayer the old Catholic divine office in their substance.
