    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. Andrea says:

    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. Andrea says:

    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….

    You are the most Traditional Non-traditional Catholic you know.

    The Ordinariate is the new way of being old. So hipster!


  5. Andrea says:

    You have coffee hour after mass.


  6. Andrea says:

    You can work your church or your faith into almost any topic of conversation, because you are so excited to be a part of it.


  7. Andrea says:

    You don’t really know what a non-practicing Catholic is, or why anyone would want to be one.

  8. You come home smelling of incense.
    You beat your breast
    You say “And with thy spirit” when attending an Ordinary Form Mass
    You have a collection of hats and wear liturgical colors according to the season

  10. KJ Hodgins says:

    … your other name for the Ordinariate is “Nerds ‘R’ Us”!! That’s actually a compliment … 😉


  11. KJ Hodgins says:

    you say, “In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost.”


  12. … you prefer to “make your humble confession to Almighty God meekly kneeling upon your knees,” rather than hunched in a chair in the Reconciliation Room.
