If you've been Orthodox for less than ten years, you're out. Sorry.

I'm looking for a truly experienced guide, preferably a priest, that is able to carry on a correspondence using the Internet.

Please let me know if any of you are eligible.

Your best bet would be to find a monastery locally and go from there. I don't know that posting on a message board is the best way to find a "guide."

I wish you well on your journey.

Let's talk via PM.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

I would think a local priest may be better suited...

First of all welcome to the forum brother. How long have you been Orthodox? What brought you to this site?
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

I agree, I guess I just assumed that he couldn't find anyone local, my mistake in not clarifying that.
