Another stupid question ahead... please be gentle.
Prior to coming into Orthodoxy, my husband and I were in a (Byzantine Catholic) parish where we felt rather uncomfortable talking to the priest about anything, but now, as newcomers to Orthodoxy, questions arise. For me, the questions seem to come up almost on an hourly basis, but thankfully for my husband, he doesn't have so many questions to be answered. Personally, I'm struggling with how much I should ask our current priest, as I don't want to be seen as a nuisance or as being inappropriate. (I have some mental baggage that I'm still trying to overcome with regards to how I view priests, also. That doesn't help matters.)
I know that many answers to common questions can be answered with reading and careful studying, but some things aren't easily answered by reading on a website, a book or even by searching on a messageboard.
It doesn't help that I cannot shake this desire to know everything about Orthodoxy ASAP, even though I'm far from being an intellectual person or a scholar.
Basically I'm curious -- how much do you share with your priest, or how much "stuff" do you bring to him, like questions or concerns?
Thanks in advance.
