God’s peace. I posted before, but received no answer. I am a new Catholic who was encouraged to remain as a Professed Tertiary in the Anglican Franciscan Order of the Divine Compassion (short of participating in Eucharist) by my Catholic bishop. Last October, I really felt separated at our convocation and wish to transfer to a genuinely Catholic Franciscan order.
I spent over two years in discernment and formation as a tertiary. Do I have to start all over again? Some people have told me that relations are quite friendly among Anglican and Catholic Franciscans and that I shouldn’t have to do this. What can you tell me?
