Just out of curiosity why don’t Anglo Catholics who are unhappy with the Episcopal church and the many who have left it become members of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, Western Rite?
I have noticed on the forums that some Anglo Catholics don’t want to accept the papacy, nor other doctrines of the Catholic Church. The Orthodox reject the papacy and the Immaculate Conception and other doctrines of the Catholic Church, which appears to be more in line with what some Anglo Catholics accept.
I would think that the answer would be the Antiochian Orthodox Church with a western liturgy. It appears that at least some of the liturgies used are from the Book of Common Prayer with some additions.
This would solve the problem of Catholics and some Orthodox (I don’t know what the Orthodox position is on Anglican orders) questioning Apostolic Succession in their churches.
I am sure that it is not the answer for some, but it seems like it would be a solution for many of them and prevent more and more new continuing Anglican churches who are not in communion with one another from forming.
I know that in my former Episcopal church that some members did become Antiochian Orthodox and when I attended their liturgy, most of it was from the Book of Common Prayer.
