You're kind of all over the map. Just an observation.
As many are in these troubled times.
Don't know many Prot churches who feel that way.
Not many, that is for sure, but their are some such as the high church anglicans and some lutheran groups that sure feel that way.
Someone else who is a former or present ECUSA member will correct me but ECUSA parishes use the Book of Common Prayer not the NO. There are some similarities but one big difference---The True Presence. The Anglo-Catholics use the BCP or Anglican Missal the latter being more like the TLM but again no valid orders no True Presence.
I know the ECUSA does not use the NO liturgy, but this priest does, and as I have already stated when I asked her why she explained that nothing in it contradicted the episcopal faith.
As far as anglo-Catholics, I once again was not talking about all anglo-Catholics, but the one I went to, in Idaho Springs, Colorado, does use the tridentine missal of 1962 in english.
And why do you say the Anglicans don't have valid orders??
Just because the pope said so?
I'm not mocking your faith, but really why? I've just heard the answer "Cause Rome said so".
While were on this issue does any body know if there is any truth to this:In 1922 Meletios IV, as ecumenical patriarch, recognized the validity if Anglican orders.
^^^^Doesn't sound right...just wondering if there is any truth to it.
not sure who you mean by the NO bishop and NO priests? Do you mean RC clergy? We don't identify our clergy as NO this or that. It is possible.......I hope you're sitting down.......that the RC clerics even the bishop were wrong. The infallibility of the Church doesn't extend to statements made by RC clergy off the cuff. Besides in the RCC the buck stops with the head honcho in Rome the Pope.
Well they aren't SSPX or CMRI or FSSP or Eastern Catholic priests, so what else would you call them other than NO priests? I meant clergy in union with Rome who only celebrate the NO liturgy.
He's the final word on things Catholic or at least Roman Catholic
Hmmmm and when did his word stop being the "final word" in the eastern rite Catholic churches?
