I still think it's weird for RC's to venerate saints like St. Mark of Ephesus.
Haha. Agreed. There might be problem with certain EO saints. I don't think that St. Mark of Ephesus is venerated by neither the Latin, nor the Byzantine Churches.

Yeah...Apotheoun, Cavaradossi, Nine_Two...there are good quality posters there, but they are outnumbered by others who want to assert Roman prerogatives over even Eastern Catholics' own devotions, as we see again most recently in arguments about how ECCs shouldn't celebrate post-schism Eastern saints, which is just silly.

I'm actually a trifle surprised to hear you say that.

Think about it, Peter J: If the Melkites, for instance, came into union with Rome in the 17th century, isn't it a bigger disruption to their traditional spirituality (which Rome has called them, and the other Eastern Catholic Churches, to come back to) to tell them to stop venerating saints from their Orthodox past, in order that they should be "more Catholic" or what have you? A similar example could be made of, say, St. Isaac of Nineveh who is venerated in both the EO and OO (and as far as I know, also in the Catholic communion), despite not being a member of either. To put it another way, a person's Orthodoxy does not change based on who venerates him. If the Melkites want to venerate post-schism saints from their pre-Catholic days, why not? I would much rather have Coptic Catholics looking to the likes of St. Severus (if that happens; I don't know, I just mean it as an example) than Thomas Aquinas or Therese of Lisieux or someone else who really has no basis being in their tradition but is suddenly held up as an example for them purely because it's somehow 'wrong' to venerate their own saints. If it wouldn't have been wrong before the 18th century when they came into union with Rome, why is it suddenly wrong now? Unless, of course, you want to say it's Rome's prerogative to deform their traditional spirituality (which I think would be most honest, but also not anything an ECC would be likely to say/admit/believe), at which point you'd have to wonder what it means to be an Eastern Catholic at all. Either Rome is really serious about this "return to your traditions" thing or she isn't.

Alright, I guess the question is: Does it cut both ways? Specifically, we know that you regard it as silly for Catholics to say that other Catholics shouldn't celebrate post-schism Orthodox saints ... but do you also think it's silly for Orthodox to say that other Orthodox shouldn't celebrate post-schism Catholic saints? (I would be surprised if you said Yes to that, but based on your last post I'm guessing you won't.)

The difference, Peter J, is that since the Eastern Catholic Churches did not exist until several centuries after the Great Schism, it is not alien to their (Orthodox, or at least Orthodox-rooted) tradition to venerate post-schism saints that were already commemorated prior to their union with Rome. There is no such similar circumstance regarding Roman Catholic saints vis-a-vis the Orthodox Church.

I guess we are, to some extent, on the same page. I do think that uniatism had a certain "bait and switch" element to it. (That might sound a bit cliche. If so I'm sorry, but I can't think of a better way of putting it, at least not at the moment.) Kinda lacking the old you'll-have-to-change-which-saints-you-venerate-once-you're-Catholic speech.

You should receive a PM that states that you've been suspended. Or at least I did. And then when I tried to log in, it said "Your account is suspended. Duration: One month." Maybe they've changed the regulations on how suspensions work recently, though, as I have been told by others that the way I was suspended wasn't in line with CAF's stated procedure (as there was no warning or anything).

They banned me once, without ever telling me why at all. No messages, nothing. Later, I went back under a different name. They didn't catch it because by then, I also had a different computer and e-mail.

Yes

Different mods give different lengths of suspension.  I think I was suspended for a week by the Liturgy and Sacraments mod.

I'd like to pose a question to all of you who are not on CAF these days: Would you return if they once again had an Eastern Christianity Forum (assuming that they unbanned those of you who have been banned)?

I find the general atmosphere to be just a bit strange. I can understand the attachment of the posters to traditon. I too wish that we could eliminate modernism in the Church. It's also understandable why the posters want to remain Catholic. That is the faith they know. But in the case of many FE posters, their position is inconsistent. If theses people really believe that the Catholic Church has defected, then it seems that one can no longer believe that the Catholic Church is the Church of the Apostles.

But they believe their mission is to restore orthodoxy in the Church (that is Latin orthodoxy as defined by Trent).

Not only that, but 90-some% of Roman Catholic parishes now distribute the Body and Blood both at each Mass, along with (afaik) all the Eastern Catholic ones, and the Orthodox. So what sense does a truly Catholic (as opposed to Truly Traditional Tridentine Catholic [In Name Only](R)) forum have in shutting down discussion like that ??? ???

I mean, with Communion in both kinds and married Priests and kids under the age of reason receiving Chrismation (confirmation) and Communion, they might jump en masse from Roman Catholicism into Eastern Catholicism  ::) ::) ::)
