Thank you for your kind welcome.
The calendar thing doesn't bother me so much, as I will try to observe the fasts between the two when traveling. I know it bothers some people, though I've only seen Old Calendarists get upset about it. I wouldn't mind being Old Calendar within Orthodoxy, it just so happens the parish closest to my house is New Calendar, but I can commune in Old Calendar parishes like the Serbian or ROCOR.
To me it seemed more symptomatic of trouble with the attitude of having a monastery, then going to the Russian jurisdiction, who had issues with them, so to avoid that they jump ship, go to another and on and on. I haven't paid much attention to all the details of it.
But with those monks, I can see why they would have to leave; of course I'm no expert in monastic protocol.
So then I begin to question the entire thing, particularly the soundness of the judgement of the men in charge there, and who is translating the screening the notes and so forth.
Their books are probably fine, and my first prayerbook recommended to me by the Fr. Confessor at my parish was the HTM one, so he seemed okay with what they were publishing.
Maybe I am totally wrong to think that way. We all sin, after all. And I would still like to read St. Isaac's homilies someday.
