I don't want to disillusion anyone, but as a lifelong Orthodox please believe me that within Orthodoxy you will also experience both distant 'stand-offish' clergy as well as loving, gentle clergy. You will find parishes with a wonderful sense of community and ones with a total lack of community. You will find ethnic enclaves that are as unforgiving and cold as any Irish Catholic or Polish Catholic parish you have been a part of and left, or as warm, kind and close as any Irish Catholic or Polish Catholic parish that you may have been privileged to be a part of in your past. You will find converts and 'cradles' who are arrogant, Pharisaic and rude as well as 'cradles' and converts who are kind, humble, full of grace, love and understanding. In other words, we are not, on the personal level, much different than the place from which you came. The essence of the Faith is not to be found within her externals, as structured as they may be, but within her heart and soul - not a series of legalisms or attempts to answer all that is a mystery to us in this world - that will be the difference between your Roman Catholic experience and Orthodoxy. If you follow this Forum too closely over time you will find that for as many triumphalist 'elitists' you may encounter among us, you will find equally passionate polemicists and apologists among your former Roman brethren. Anyway, welcome to the Church and your continuation in the journey each Christian is undertaking in this world.
We're all sinners. If you're looking for a perfect Church full of perfect people, this ain't it.
It is, however, the One True Catholic and Apostolic Church, founded by Christ Himself, and that was why I converted. I was under no illusions that I had suddenly walked into a roomful of perfect saints (though there are more of them around that you might think - I am not one of them, needless to say!)
(fwiw, my husband was a cradle RC, parochial schools etc. etc., and says he found the true Catholic Church in Orthodoxy.)
