I have decided to return to Orthodoxy from Eastern Catholicism. I feel a little awkward talking about this, but I need all the help I can get. I left Orthodoxy because I felt I got treated like garbage at a couple of parishes (ex CSB AND non ex-CSB...well, I'm not one for keeping grudges, and I need to do what's best for my salvation. In the meantime, while I'm not quite at the Khomiakov level, I'll be the resident new-calender, ultra-ecumenist minimalist (what a mouthful!). I'll defend Israel, and the War on Terror. In short, I'll be sure to be a pain in the rear end to everyone here.
Seriously, this is a pretty hard time for me. Please pray for my (eventual) reconciliation with the Church. I'm not sure exactly where I'll end up, but I need a solid foundation in my life, and I'm not too picky, as long as I dont go back to some parishes where I've already burned my bridges, so to speak.
Actually, I admit I haven't been a model Byzantine Catholic either, but I don't want to get too in depth about my life since May ( I last recived Orthodox Holy Commuion on Bright Monday). Basically I'm doing what I feel it best for my salvation.
Please also pray that I can get over some grudges that I have, some really big grudges with some Orthodox that I know. I wish I had left Orthodoxy on better terms, but I really need to get over some past troubles.
In the meantime, I'll combine the Great Russian traditonalism of the OCA's Diocese of Sf and the West, (gotta love Obkihod!)with the openmindenness of Fr. Lev Gillet. Well, I've got to do fix dinner.
Wishing everyone a blessed fast,
