I know you, and others, are awaiting expectantly to hear a word or two from RB.
In the meantime, allow me to interject my own welcome to OC.net! This is THE place for you now that you are Orthodox; the best there is, bar none! (Anastasios, Phil, and all the rest of administration, you owe me one!
Although a cradle (pre-Vatican II) and "devout" Roman Catholic like you were, I am here to learn more about the Eastern Church(es) and not to convert.
I would not convince you and your family to revert to the RCC. This is the "role" some posters here have assigned to RB.
Your journey of faith is personal and I am certain, by the looks of it, you will have a rewarding home in Orthodoxy. The OCA seems to suit RC converts because it is probably the only Orthodox jurisdiction that is consciously open to diversity. (Let's put aside the Antiochian Western Riters.)
There are three things that struck me in your introductory and subsequent posts.
(1) I wonder why you were not, or chose to be not, confirmed into the Catholic Church.
(2) It seems you left your parish in disgust due to many things but culminating in the criminal indiscretion of your parish priest (is he the Pastor?). (BTW, the priest is not a pedophile, the 2 teenage female victims having been beyond pre-pubescence.)
Wheaton has 3 Roman Catholic parishes: St. Daniel, St. Mark, and St. Michael. Even if you were not allowed to transfer your family registration (there are pastoral reasons for this), you could have attended services in either of the other two, or in adjoining cities like Glen Ellyn, Villa Park, or Naperville. Nobody could have prevented you from attending other parishes within your neighborhood.
(3) It's your opinion that the sexual scandals that plagued, and continue to plague, the Roman Catholic Church will eventually lead to the total collapse of the RCC in the U.S., citing the celibate priesthood as the main cause.
I don't agree with the cause you cited and the conclusion you derived therefrom.
In the audit report done by an outside party recently submitted to the USCCB, there is a preponderance of cases of ephebophilia, or sexual attraction from an adult male to a pubescent male or female (up to 18). A lesser number of cases involved sexual attraction to pre-pubescent male or female, which is pedophilia.
The audit confirms many and various psychological studies that found married and unmarried (e.g., celibate priests) males are both likely to commit ephebophilia or pedophilia. This explains the non-exclusivity of these types of sexual indiscretions to celibate priests in the Catholic Church: such activities pervade other religious denominations and society in general. Only the Catholic Church was thrust into the public's eye.
As to the eventual total collapse of the RCC in the U.S., I am skeptical of your dire predictions for I cannot imagine the loss of about 64 million U.S. Catholics, and increasing at the rate of about 2 million (conversions and baptisms) annually.
Let us just examine the State of Illinois, which is divided into 6 dioceses. The Archdiocese of Chicago alone has about 2.4 million, with your former Diocese of Joliet reporting 620,000 Catholics. All told, Illinois has about 4 million Roman Catholics (excluding Eastern Catholics) spread over 1,055 parishes.
How in heaven do you foresee the collapse of the RCC in Illinois, thus jumpstarting the eventual collapse of the RCC in the U.S.? You will soon discover that the number of parishes of your former diocese, with 133, might have more than the number of Orthodox parishes throughout Illinois.
At any rate, I sincerely wish you and your family a meaningful stay at OCA's St. Joseph in Wheaton.
Christ is Risen!
