It has been my experience that a large number of converts to religions (non-Christian as well as Christian) enter their new faith carrying hostile feelings toward their former one (s). It is my fervent prayer that this not be the case with me, and it seems that God has heard and is answering my prayer.
For many years I harbored much resentment toward the (post-V2) RCC for the way they treated us Traditional RCs back in the 1970s; making us skulk around like lepers, friends refused to attend our baptisms, weddings, etc because they were held in "forbidden" SSPX (and other TradLat) chapels...I resented the way they destroyed the traditions the church had had for hundreds of years, through the actions of one council (V2).
I also harbored resentment to my childhood faith (Orthodox Judaism), for the ways they lied to me and deceived me, among other things, telling me that the Christians distorted the Jewish Scriptures to make then sound more like Jesus, when I learned through my study that the reverse was true (I refer to the LXX vs Masoretic controversy).....I don't want to enter the Orthodox Church with any resentment. I want to forgive both religions for the way they betrayed me and lied to me. I want to enter Orthodoxy with a clean slate.
I was away from Traditional RCism a long time; I just learned today that in 2009, Pope Benedict XVI lifted the excommunication against Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (who confirmed me in 1978). I hadn't known or realized. I am glad this was done for the sake of the internal peace of that church.
A Roman Catholic might say that the things I hated about Rome have been changed, so why won't I return? Because in the meantime I have come to understand a very fundamental difference between the way Rome views church authority and the way the Orthodox Church views it. I was meant to finally understand this difference, and I had to come to this point in order to understand it. The attitude of Rome toward church authority is what caused the liturgical abuses of V2 in the first place: Catholics felt they had to follow whatever Rome did out of obedience, even if they knew it was wrong. Ironically, the 1970s Traditionalist RCs, by thinking for themselves and breaking communion with novus ordo Rome, were behaving in an Orthodox fashion...and by Rome's definition, yes, they were schismatics as the novus ordo church referred to them.
I've come to learn that the Orthodox view of church authority is this: if a metropolitan, priest, etc tells the faithful to adopt a new dogma, doctrine, beliefs, etc that the faithful know is not consistent with the ancient Canons of the church or Scripture, they are dutybound to break communion with him. I have always believed this, which I now realize, is why I never made a "good" (i.e., blindly obeying church authority) RC by their definition. In that sense, I was Orthodox long before I even knew what the Orthodox Church actually was.
