Now, I didn't quite know how to frame the "Subject," but I'm hoping to get orthodox information that gives me a run for my money.
With whom can I discuss orthodoxy in depth? A priest told me that I would need to study on my own. I would like to have someone to bounce things off of, not someone who thinks he knows it all, but rather a theologian, preacher, historian type that would be able to provide a convincing discussion dealing with ancient Church teaching. I need the hard questions asked with time to grapple with them. I refuse to enter into a debate becuase that's not my purpose for being here. I want to know for sure, one way or the other, if in fact, the RCC broke off from the Catholic Church, why the names are as we see them today, etc. I've always said that I became Catholic again because of Orthodoxy. Unfortunately, it wasn't the RCC that led me home seeking truth in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. At a minimum, I would love to become Eastern Catholic in communion with Rome.
Private lessons would be nice.
