I just want everyone to know that I worked myself up into a bit of frenzy over at Catholic Answers today. Because of the way in which I expressed my frustration with some Eastern Catholics I got myself suspended. I realize that I allow my zeal for the Catholic faith take me places it should not at times and I realize that that is something I have done here at OC.net. While I don't apologize for my theological/ecclesiological positions, I do apologize, in a most heartfelt way for my actions and the manner in which I represent my positions. I realize that I do not always represent my faith, nor the traditionalist movement in the Church well when I behave so poorly. There is no excuse for my behavior, as it is unbefitting of a Christain in all circumstances. I beg the forgiveness of all those here that I have offended. I am of the rank of the lowliest of all sinners and I confess that freely before you all. Again, I am truely sorry to those whom I treated uncharitably and to God for my sin. I beg forgiveness and hope that you all know that I will be trying to change and overcome this vice.
Many Blessings in Christ to you all, My dear brothers and sisters in our Common Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

When we tell you there's a problem, we're the worst in the world, but when CAF tells you the same thing you take it to heart..... I guess you only listen to Roman Catholics!..... Cheesy

Its temporary. I have been suspended for two weeks and then I will be allowed back on the forum but will still be temporarily banned from the Eastern Catholic forum.

I am sorry brother.
You were forgiven before you even asked.
Just try to relax a little. Anything that needs us to defend it must be weaker than we are. The Fullness of Truth- wherever it lies- does not need us to defend it. The Truth is it's own defense.

Dear Papist, 
We all fall short and make mistakes.  Your apology shows a humble heart and a desire to be closer to God.

blessings,  Juliana Smiley

Repentance also means a change of heart.  I hope that you have the strength, or rather, that God gives you the strength to do a better job of defending yourself and your faith in the future, without the complications you have had in the past. 

I for one would hate for you to lose your fire and spirit in regards to all these things.  By the same token, It is always good to take a step back when we find ourselves in a "frenzy" as you put it.

God bless you , Papist. Of course, you've never offended me in the least, so I'm really not qualified to contribute to this thread, but I understand well how you're feeling.

Papist, I hope you can forgive me as well.  I got worked up and was offensive in that thread as well.  And I pray that I can control myself in the future.  Please forgive me for my lack of charity.

God bless you brother. I realize that I am abrasive and rude at times on line.
