Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forums. I have a bit of an odd dilemma and I could use some advice. I'm a Catholic convert from Protestantism (Nazarene mostly with a short time in Non Denominational, Methodist and TEC). I love the Catholic Church but I'm also drawn to the Anglican tradition and English spirituality. The Book of Common Prayer and St. Augustine's Prayer book are part of my daily devotions and I love the high church Anglican liturgy. I've attended an Anglo-Catholic parish (ACC) on occasion along with the local high church TEC parish in addition to my own Catholic parish. I also view Anglican Holy Orders and sacraments as valid in many cases (renewed apostolic succession through Old Catholics, PNCC, etc) which is a frowned upon view in the RCC though it's backed up by the code of canon law. If I went by my personal preference I'd join one of the Continuum churches. That brings us to my dilemma. I truly believe in the teachings of the Catholic Church including the Papacy (though my level of belief varies on certain points and there are certainly issues with the way certain teachings are applied) and I can't see myself ever leaving for any reason. On top of that I feel like God may be calling me to the priesthood. The obvious solution to me was the Ordinariate. That isn't a viable option though because there isn't a parish in my state or the surrounding states and I can't move far away due to family issues. There are also several things about the liturgy, etc that I don't like. The biggest issue is that you can only join the Ordinariate if you were a member of an Anglican or Lutheran church and while I attended TEC for a year as a child my parents and I were never actually members or received any sacraments other than Holy Communion. So I'm trying to make sense of all this and find the right way forward. I'm honestly confused and at a loss at this point. I've tried talking to other Catholics about this and they've been less than helpful. I also brought this up at the TEC parish and they basically just said to leave the RCC and made arguments against it, once again less than helpful. From what I've seen people on this forum seem to be pretty open minded so I'm hoping you may be able to give some advice, resources, anything really. Thanks for taking the time to read all that.
