An apology
« on: September 28, 2011, 04:03:08 PM »
Dear Friends and Brothers

I want to apologize for my conduct at the beggining of this year (or maybe the end of the previous year).

I never intended to attack Eastern Orthodoxy and I never did it (someone posted at a different messageboard that I was bashing my former spiritual home).

My purposed transfer to the Catholic Church did not work the way I wanted and I think some people got damaged because of my attitude.

This does not mean I'm enough ready to return to Eastern Orthodoxy.

I ask for your forgiveness.  Have a blessed day.

El Señor es tu sombra a tu mano derecha." De día no te molestará el sol, ni de noche la luna. El Señor te guardará de todo mal; guardará tu alma;" guardará tus salidas y tus entradas desde ahora y por siempre. (Salmo 120)

Selam Mexican :)

I am relatively new to this forum, but I am sure where you are right now is shared by others in here also , since we have here many good people of different confessions of faith, and level of belief and unbelief, etc. so welcomeback anyway  ;D I for one from the way you apologised for  your conduct and also for something you know you did not do, can say you are a good well meaning person so I hope to see you around in this forum. if this was an actual  coffee house I would have bought you a coffee or tea  ;) but since its not I will just raise my mug and say cheers! ;D

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Mexican, I have no recollection to what you are inferring, however, you know better what you have/have not done.

I forgive you, and may God forgive you!

I hope you resolve your issues and find your way back home to the True Church of Orthodoxy!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

God blesses humility and rewards repentance. So, your words indicate that you must be close to Christ. May Our Lord bless and guide you in your continued search to find your true spiritual home.

"Whether it’s the guillotine, the hangman’s noose, or reciprocal endeavors of militaristic horror, radical evil will never be recompensed with radical punishment. The only answer, the only remedy, and the only truly effective response to radical evil is radical love."

Repentance is a wonderful thing.  Lord have mercy.
