I have not read any 70s and 80s feminists, but I have read a 19th century Russian Orthodox theologian, and pious priests' writings, on this and similar topics. Those are what inform my views. I am so overflowingly grateful for what they have done in teaching me. It's been a huge blessing in my life. I do not exactly feel as if I have to be a watchdog of Orthodoxy, as if things rise or fall, resting on the online posts I make. I honestly feel that Orthodoxy is Orthodoxy, and it is miraculous, and it will take shape as to its earthly expressions, and progress along, and exist, in accordance with a mixture of human good and bad, and Divine providence which will cause it never to fail from off the earth.
Let's take a quick look at the DSM-IV. Only a clinician can diagnose. I do not pretend to adhere to any clinical model when I remark on poor Sister Margaret-Mary's state. But, honestly, speaking in layman's terms, look at her. The sisters of her house were convinced she was crazy. She would spend entire nights in what she described as "romantic conversations" with Christ. She engaged in severe self-mutilating behaviours and instructed others to eat paper pellets on certain days, fasting. Roman Catholic authorities tried to destroy copies of her life, when it was published, because it was so shocking and vulgar. Could we say kindly that the best impulses of the Roman Catholics of those days, correspond to the sensibilities of Orthodox Christians in our day?
Did St. Dmitry of Rostov encourage devotion to the Sacred Heart? That's what's implied here. Bring forward what he ever taught on this. I challenge the idea (respectfully, as always).
Finally, what in the world does "ignorance of your former Church" mean? My former Church? Huh?
