Eastern Rite Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. If you are Orthodox now, why refer to a Catholic prayer for as you see, there are two distinct Hail Mary prayers: One from Roman Catholicism and one from Eastern Orthodoxy. If you were Catholic, even Eastern Rite/Greek Catholic, you wouldn't be the only one on this forum from that background.
I have not, nor ever been in allegiance with ROME! I was baptised into the One True Holy Orthodox Church as an infant, and resent you implying that I was EVER Catholic! That is rude of you. I never said I recited the Catholic Hail Mary. That was YOUR implication. I merely referred to the prayer we say as the Hail Mary. The ONLY Prayer I ever memorized was "Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women, blessed is the fruit of they womb, for thou hast born the Saviour of our souls."
The name of the Church I was baptised into was founded by my great grandparents and is called ST. DEMETRIUS UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX
CATHEDRAL. Fr. Taras Chubenko is the Priest, and he attended ST. SOPHIA'S UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX
How did this discussion go from confession to attacking me and calling me Catholic?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Just because a tradition (small t) is not practiced in YOUR parish does not make ME Catholic!
My family has fought hard for our Orthodox faith and I resent and am hurt by the implication that I was ever Catholic.
Need I scan a copy of my ORTHODOX baptismal certificate and my ORTHODOX confession certificate to prove this to you?
