Some groups during the Reformation believed that priesthood authority was still needed, but was lost from the earth. Roger Williams believed, "There is no regularly constituted church of Christ on earth, nor any person qualified to administer any church ordinances; nor can there be until new apostles are sent by the Great Head of the Church for whose coming I am seeking." Another group, the Seekers, believed that the Roman Catholic Church had lost its authority through corruption and waited for Christ to restore his true church and authority.
I mean...maybe just become a protestant of some kind?
I found this article kind of bewildering - the author's cultural identity as a Catholic is so strong that even as he is railing against core elements of the Catholic Church he never even bothers to dismiss the idea that there are other Christian denominations out there, much less engage with the idea that one of them might be a better fit for his beliefs.
