A memo issued last month by Sako lists 10 priests who fled violence in Iraq and started churches in their new homes. The memo said they were to return to Iraq by Oct. 22, 2014, or face suspension. The reason: the church never officially approved their moves, which were mostly to escape the Gulf War in the 1990s.

I see...

Still, why now of all times? The spate of recent ISIS bombings in Baghdad indicates that no part of Iraq, even those far from the front lines, is really safe for Christians right now. If he had done this several years ago when Iraq was still relatively stable, that would have been one thing. But now? Horrible timing.

Very cool! You are Old Rite?

Yes, I am. It wasn't really a conscious choice or anything. I was driving around town that day, and figured it was just a good a day as any to check out an Orthodox Church. Since the Carpatho-Russian Church was closed, the next closest option was the Old Rite Church. I literally walked in as they were having a catechumen class, which started the year long process that finished with my baptism this past June.

If you haven't already posted a thread about your conversion,  please do. Old Ritualists and Believers are a bit of a pet subject of mine and I'd love to read your experience

There's one on here, but it's not something I'm proud of. Going back to right before I was baptized (when my post was written) to quite recently, I carried a lot of baggage from when I was a dedicated Roman Catholic. I bashed my former parish in a way that would really hurt some of the people there (including my family) who played a seminal role in my spiritual formation as a child; without which I would have never had the foundation that would latter allow me to seek the truth in Orthodoxy. It was too emotional, too clouded by all the things that were going through my head at the time, and focused too little on what I saw in Orthodoxy (and the Old Rite) while spending too much time describing the intellectual process that led me from Catholicism, to atheism, back to Catholicism, to Orthodoxy.

If you'd like, I can send you a PM focusing on my direct experience coming from Roman Catholicism (Latin Rite Novus Ordo) to the Old Rite of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Uncovered in an outhouse, hopefully not a freshly used one.

Outhouse in British English does not necessarily mean toilet. It can mean shed, stable, etc.
