Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The Church teaches us precisely to take these matters to priests, and in all honesty, if you have been going to several Orthodox priests and have been mutually given the advice to stay active within your own Roman Catholic communion, then perhaps God is asking you to take that advice? The Sacrament of Orthodox Baptism and Orthodox Communion comes from the hands of our priests, and we are obligated to respect their decisions in these matters as being Divine.
Or, more likely, the devil has corrupted their ministry and they have become heretics and they need to be told to recant or be deposed.

Or perhaps we are not supposed to regard priests as infallible.
So what, are you going to walk around and suspect every single priest you meet as being of the Devil? Have you no faith in God to send appropriate priests? Are you a vitriolic Protestant now, looking for the Devil in every priest and Tradition? Remember, God is in control of everything, and we should seek Him in prayer. I did not tell the brother to listen to the priests as Gospel, but all of you must confess it is a bit mystical that the brother has had the same response on several occasions, so either we assume ALL the priests he met are frauds, or that maybe God wants Him to stay Catholic (for at least the meantime?)
I am not one to question another's faith, even HIM Haile Selassie I, the One True Defender of the Orthodox Faith, told us these exact words, and welcomed Catholic missions to Ethiopia EVEN AFTER THE POPE BLESSED THE BOMBS WHICH WERE DROPPED ON ETHIOPIA IN WWII!!!
That is a lesson on humility, faith, patience..
I told the brother to pray about these matters, but in all honesty, if the several priests I had reasoned with when I was a Catechumen had told me to stay a Baptist, I would have seen that as surely a sign from God. Remember, we get baptised by Priests, we receive Communion by priests, and we are to be humble and respect the Apostolic Authority and the Divine Mysteries, and no be so democratically self-seeking and overly ambitious in our critiques, which borders on prideful self-righteousness! Respect the priests and you respect God, this the Apostles have taught us both in the Canons and even the Scriptures!!
