A lapsed Roman Catholic, I spent time as a catechumen in the Antiochian Archdiocese, but ultimately left the catechumenate.  But being very discouraged with - among other things - current Roman liturgical practices, I am reconsidering Orthodoxy.  I have also considered the SSPX, but it appears to be very cultish to me, and some theological issues would remain.  Having moved recently, the nearest Orthodox parish is OCA, and I met with the priest for a somewhat lengthy discussion, as well as attending Matins (it has been quite awhile!).

I have been lurking here for some time and finally decided to join Smiley

Welcome! IF you have any questions, feel free.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
