Greetings
« on: March 02, 2010, 04:08:09 PM »
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 :)

Welcome to the forum!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

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
