Anglican Private Confession


#22

This ought to get a few responses.


#23

That’s a relief.


#24

Then, (I say this with all due charity) don’t make assertions concerning the validity of other church’s sacraments.


#25

I see you aren’t sure what that was supposed to mean, yes. I’m not sure you understood the OP.


#26

I propose a drinking game. One shot for every mention of “Anglican Church,” “divorce,” and “motley.”


#27

wait a second, there is only one True Church

some pagan rites accept goat throat-slitting as a sacrament

am i to accept that as a “valid scacrament” ?


#28

One shot for me, or one shot for everyone?


#29

For the Catholics here:

The only ‘Anglican’ church mentioned in this thread that is in full communion with Rome is the Anglican Ordinate.


#30

Shall we call the Ordinariate a church?


#31

No.

Don’t comment on things that you yourself say you are ignorant concerning.


#32

I dont know the technicalities, nor do I especially want to get into them.
I just wanted to make that clarification.


#33

I appreciate (if I comprehend) your comment. But it valid (so to speak) to make assertions about Anglican sacraments, if one is RC.


#34

Technically, the Ordinariate is an Ordinariate. Part of a (the) Church.


#35

ok, moderator

are anglican sacraments valid in the roman church or not?

your answer is “maybe”

my response is why bother with the anglicans?

it is a dying, fruitless semi-catholic church wannabe

good luck finding an anglican church that is even open for more than one mid-morning sunday service

the anglican church has gone dormant

come home to mother rome

you need us…


#36

I’m just speaking to avoid confusion among the Catholics here. Not trying to diss CoE.


#37

As I said, I appreciate the sentiment.


#38

Yea, I know the CAF drill. :roll_eyes:


#39

One could try my parish. Two services. Weekly, maybe 5 total.


#40
  1. I’m not a mod.
  2. I never said that Anglican sacraments are valid in the RCC. What I actually said, is that the Personal Ordinate of Saint Peter, AKA the Anglican Ordinate, a group of former anglicans now in full communion with Rome has valid sacraments.

Does that make sense?


#41

You are very welcome.
