You might be an Anglo-Catholic if…..

I ran across this gem while perusing FB groups. Parenthetical comments are those of yours truly, as are the additions at the end of this list. HAPPY EASTER & feel free to share .

… you believe that Sacraments are to be administered, not passed around.
{ Amen. ” to Take Communion” is sooo Prot}
… you hold the doctrine that whatever is worth doing is worth overdoing.
{ The more smells & bells, the better}
…you think of the Wippel’s catalog as liturgical porn.

…you get more exercise genuflecting, kneeling, and prostrating than running, jogging, or walking.{ and know, mind y’all, what the sitting, standing & kneeling actually means & why we do it }

…most of the volumes in your library have been out of print for over a century.{ scary but true…..}

… the primary causes of your violating the Tenth Commandment are found on the pages of Wippell’s.{ Ok I had to look up Wippell’s but one I did…WOW!!!}

You’d consider going over to Rome if it didn’t mean giving up being catholic.
{ hahahaha YES!!!!!}

…on hearing the parable of the Good Samaritan, you wonder what the priest and the Levite were wearing.

…on Easter morning in your parish, the men at the altar wear more lace than the women in the congregation.

…you believe that the current controversies over the Bishopric of Jerusalem, the Open Pulpit Canon, the ordination of women, the new Prayer Book, and the Bishop of New Hampshire can be settled amicably but that the Alcuin Club and the Society of SS. Peter & Paul may need separate provinces.

…you believe that ‘old-time religion’ was what we had before Pius XII started mucking around with Holy Week.

….you’ll fight to the death for the 1928 Prayer Book, provided it’s never actually used.{or only brought out during Lent….}

… you are willing to receive a visitation from your bishop, but would go to the barricades to keep cassock-albs out of your parish.

… you think that “Almy” is French for Methodist.

…you think that “On Eagles’ Wings” is where Low Churchmen read the epistle.

…you have trouble breathing if there’s not enough incense at Mass{ and, there MUST be smoke with the incense}

{ You think that any hymn worth its weight is by composers who are already dead}

{ you would think it totally cool to challenge members of the local Roman parish with a Thurible swinging event at the  annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life}

{ at your Diocesan Convention, there is a warning on all the doors leading to the nave NO OPEN CONTAINERS IN THE CHURCH}
