  1. I’ll start: If you hear “The Lord be with you.” and have trouble responding.

    “And also with you… Wait… No. And with your spirit. No! Um, I’ve got this… And with thy spirit! Yes!”


  2. If you have a drawer full of rosaries/chaplets and you have trouble finding one that’s Catholic, because you’ve been praying the Anglican rosary for years.


  3. When you constantly have to explain that you are really Catholic and not Episcopalian…

    Me: We have the Catholic faith with Anglican hymns and prayers.

    Them: So do believe in transubstantiation?
    Me: Yes. If it’s part of the Catholic faith, we believe it.
    Them: How about fasting before Eucharist?
    Me: Well, it’s part of the faith, right?
    Them: Yes.
    Me: Then we do that.
    Them: Lent?
    Me: Yes.
    Them: Mary?
    Me: Yes.
    Them: Priesthood celibacy?
    Me: Yes.
    Them: But your leader is married.
    Me: He received a dispensation from the Pope since he converted.
    Them: I don’t get it. That sounds Protestant to me.
    Me: Sigh….
