To be Catholic is to Participate of the Misteries of The Sacred Eucharist.
To Be Catholic is to be OBEDIENT of our Bishops, True succesors of the Apostles.

This is fine as long as you bear in mind that this is what it means to be Orthodox Catholic as well.

Mary

To be Catholic is to be Orthodox, It doesn't matter if you are Eastern Catholic or Latin Catholic, we both are Orthodox. I don't like to differenciate between Byzantine Catholics and Latin Catholics, because to me we both are the same people of the Lord, we remain in comunion with Peter's Succesor.




 To Be catholic is also to be where St. Paul is.

I really like quite more the paintings from El Greco than many Byzantine Icons. And yet I recognize that those Icons are beacons of the faith of many sincere eastern christian souls.

You can keep El Greco" (the greek) or Δομήνικος Θεοτοκόπουλος (Domenicos Theotocopoulos)\ thats so ugly to me they don't have any spiritual aww nada.....you did us a favor by taking it..

To be Catholic is be a member of the 23 sui iuris Churches.

To be a Roman Catholic is much better.  The Roman Catholic Church is the only one which ia autocephalous and top dog over all the other Catholic Churches.
Fr. Ambrose, you continually put me to sleep with your borring and packaged responses.

Imagine how we feel with the constant flow of pre-packaged Roman Catholic propaganda!  laugh

I think I'd rather have a thread of RC's being joyful in their faith than yet another article in some newspaper/blog that uses the much-publicized issues within the various Churches to try and convince people that religion is ridiculous.  We may have our issues, and may believe that the other (RC to OC, and vice-versa) is not the Body of Christ, but at least we're both trying in one way or another to glorify the One God in Three Persons.

Ok, last time I wrote in this forum I was warned 90 days for telling a catholic to remain catholic, I guess it was because I posted that post in the conversion forum, yet, I hope here in this "Catholic - "Orthodox" discussion" forum, there is a bit more openess and tolerance towards catholics who are happy to be catholics. If I am wrong please be mercyful and tell me before I got amonested again.


Well much has been said about catholicism from "eastern orthodox" point of view, Now without any intend to argue, I am going to show Why I love to be catholic.


 To be Catholic is to be part of the family of Our Lord and God Jesuchrist, by the Baptism.
 To be Catholic is to receive the Body and Blood of Christ in the Sacred Eucharist.
 To be Catholic is to be certain of being forgiven from our sins by the sacrament of reconciliation.
 To be Catholic is to be certain of receiving the Holly Spirit  by chrismation.
 To be Catholic is to be certain that the Triumphant Church, the one formed by the Saints of the Lord, operates for the salvation of the militant Church, the one formed in the faithfuls of the Lord.
 To be Catholic is to believe the words of the Lord.
 To be Catholic is to be part of the communion of the Apostles of Our Lord and God Jesuchrist.
 To be Catholic is to be protected, guided and defended by the succesor of St. Peter. The only one who received by our lord the comand to take care of Lord's people.
 To be Catholic is to be in comunion with all the Fathers of the Church. Who are also in communion with The succesor of St Peter in Rome.
 To be Catholic is to be son of the always Virgin Mary. Mother of the true God by whom we live.
 To be Catholic  is to be part of the people whom received by the will of God, America, a new continent, for the people of the Lord.
 To be Catholic is to be blessed by Our Lady The Inmaculated Virgin of Guadalupe to be here in America, to stay here, to be part of the flock of his son, Our Lord Jesus.
 To be Catholic is to be certain of the inerracy of the pope in matters of doctrine of faith.
 To be Catholic is to be Part of the Only Body of Our Lord.
 To be Catholic is to walk to the Lord in comunion with those whom he has choosen since ever.

I just posted trying to figure out if a monologue is exactly what he wants. Or even if he expects people to agree with his statements as if he is infallible.  Undecided

To be Catholic is to be certain of receiving the Holly Spirit  by chrismation.
 
Christ is Risen!

Can we ask questions of you, Alonso?

Are there now 8 Sacraments in the Catholic Church?

There seems to be a new Sacrament called Chrismation which takes place at the same time as Baptism and confers the Holy Spirit.

Then there is of course the Sacrament of Confirmation which takes place quite a few years later.

I understand that Confirmation is one of the irrepeatable Sacraments and I suppose that Chrismation is also?

To be Catholic is to belong to the body of Christ extended in all nations and continents under the Guard of St. Peter's Succesor.

To be Orthodox is to belong to the body of Christ extended in all nations and continents under the Guard of Christ Himself who is the Head, Invisible and Visible, of the Church.

That's why I'm happy to be Orthodox.

Alonso, would you please answer my question?

We can't love what we don't know, ¿How can we expect to get united again if we do not love each other?, ¿How can we expect to love each other if we don't know each other?, ¿How can you know catholicism if you only know what some others not catholic tell you about catholicism?

PD
Answered.

No, that really didn't answer my question at all.
Take what it is useful for you and leave the rest, and if you leave it all, it is up to you

It's a really simple question. But w/e. It's not worth asking you a dozen times.

¿What answer would you like to read?

Well, I was asking you if you were expecting people to agree with what you said in your original post. A simple "yes" or "no" would be the best start.

When speaking about Faith, and personal convictions, can anyone out of God predict something with 100% certainty? Your question then is only rhetorical, but my answer is deeper. Because you are looking for the cause of the thread, not for an answer of your question, at least thats what I think.

Basically I'm wondering if it's worth objecting to your claims about the nature of your Church or if you are simply wanting this to be a Roman church fan page of sorts.

This is a Greek Catholic Uckrainian Church in Canada

Excepting the issues with the roof, I think it looks great.  Smiley

Pointless thread is pointless.

I was however pleasantly surprised to see this photo of the interior of the Uspenski (Dormition of the Theotokos) Cathedral in Helsinki.

ps
Angry angryface at spellchecker for complaining about "Theotokos"

To be Catholic is to be Eastern and Western.


Isn't this the Melkite church in Harissa, Lebanon?

Are these two churches from Lebanon, too?

Nevermind, I tried to post an image, which showed up in the preview, but which won't show up for some reason on the actual thread. *shrugs* Just ignore this.
