I’ve been an organist at an Episcopal church for the past year or so and I just became Catholic this Easter.
Is it best to continue to take the invalid communion (not in substitution for a valid Catholic Eucharist which I receive later each Sunday evening) and pray for Spiritual Communion, or to stop suddenly and be prepared to answer questions of the inquisitive Episcopalian parishioners?
P.S. I’m not quite sure, but I think that Episcopalians don’t teach Transubstantiation, only that Christ is spiritually (not physically) present in the bread and wine. And Catholics believe that because Anglican orders are invalid, Christ isn’t physically present in Episcopal Eucharist. So since Episcopalians and Catholics seem to agree that Christ isn’t physically present in the elements, would my actions still be seen as giving assent to what they believe?
