Here is a quote from an aquaintance of mine. How should I, as a Catholic, claiming our true Apostolic Succession, handle this?
“Lutherans and Anglicans/Episcopalians do have a line of apostolic succession in Europe and the Anglicans/Episcopalians do in the United States. American Lutherans had to make the choice between starting churches and ministering to the faithful or not ordaining any ministers because no ministers who held the apostolic succession had immigrated. The Anglican/Episcopal Church was the established church in the colonies, so it sent over priests who preserved the apostolic succession.”
