I know this topic has been beat to death, but Im still confused.  I tried a search, but all the calendar topics were merged into one thread and it was hard to follow.

Does Gregorian mean New Calendar while Julian means old?? Or is the Julian spilt up between old and new? Does the new Julian calendar line up with the Gregorian? If so, why not just go with the Gregorian? 

I know I should know this, but its always confused me.  If youre tired of explaining it, link me to a brief article that explains how it all works.  Thanks!!

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

There are no basic (that is, simple in answer) calendar questions.

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Old Calendar refers to the Julian, while the New Calendar refers to the Revised Julian.
