Anglicanorum Cœtibus, U.S.A.

Glorious news of "the first Episcopal church in the United States to convert under new Vatican rules meant to attract disaffected Protestants" — Episcopal parish in Bladensburg converts to Roman Catholic Church. "Members of St. Luke’s said they converted because of their longing for one clear religious authority."

This blogger has been in contact with like-minded Romish conspirators here locally. I never joined, but the Anglican Communion served as a six-year way station on my via media between the High Church Lutheranism in which I was raised and the Catholicism to which I finally converted. In fact, about a decade ago, a week before being received into the Anglican Church of Korea, I got cold feet and would later that same year find myself unda da pope.

While theologically the right thing to do, liturgically, it was a step down. If an Anglican Ordinariate Catholic parish emerges here, it may well be the right place.

There is little as glorious as a proper 1928 BCP liturgy celebrated with Catholic rubrics and propers. I agree with you completely that a reformed Anglican liturgy, brought into conformity with the Catholic faith, is something devoutly to be prayed for. It would be fantastic to attend!
