As a Catholic priest who was ordained in a valid non roman church, i have decided that i was wrong about papal supremacy and the filioque. I have decided to return to the roman church but do not know how. The local parish priest asked why would i even want to give up my priesthood in the old catholic tradition which has gotten too liberal for me. I am not sure what to do, but i feel as if every time i celebrate mass i sin.

Well, that's because every time you celebrate Mass you sin, as you know it is wrong in your conscience.  If the most local priest resists you, go to another or to the Bishop.  Good luck!

Go to the FSSP or ICK. They can help you.

Thanks be to God that you have received such a grace.  If you care to, pm me.  I will pray for your embracing of the Catholic faith.

I can't help you with your question, I'm afraid, but I wonder if you'd help me understand something. I'm sorry to try you with my ignorance, which is not intentional or deliberate. I don't know what you mean by being a Catholic priest who was ordained in a valid non Roman church. From that I thought you meant perhaps you're a priest in the Eastern rite, but then you went on to say you are only just now accepting papal infallibility, or supremacy, as you said, and the filioque. Are you an Orthodox priest? But you say you're already Catholic. Thank you for any information.
Be good.

I took it to mean he's part of the "Old Catholic" Church.  http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11235b.htm  His orders would be valid.  The Anglicans who would get ordained by Old Catholic bishops called it "getting the Dutch Touch."

Wow. Deo Gratias for a new Catholic! Do we Catholics call the priests of the Old Catholic church Father?

We do not have to, but some people do out of respect for their orders, but lack of jurisdiction, heresy, schism, and irregularity do not make it them okay.

In any case, it's a great blessing to convert. Congratulations, Father! I will remember you in my rosary today.
Be good.
