The Reconciliation of Penitents
From a very interesting youtube channel. This seems to be the first of a series of videos that together form a complete rite for restoring of penitents in ancient western Christianity. In all my years in Anglo-catholic circles and now as a convert to Orthodoxy in a Western Rite context, I have never seen such a rite. From just a cursory viewing, it seems full of meaning and perhaps a necessary tonic for souls in our day.
