Hello!

Welcome to the forum!

I am a Traditional Roman Catholic interested in learning about Eastern Orthodoxy. 

Then you'll probably want to check out www.monochos.net/conversation/

As forums go, this one isn't bad, but it's not an Eastern Orthodox forum because all Orthodox (Oriental, Coptic, Eastern, etc...) are allowed to post here and it's very often difficult to ascertain what's "Eastern" and what's not.

Hello Ancilla Domini. Christ is risen!

If I may suggest an approach to using OC.Net, I would start first with Convert Issues, where folks are provided with helpful information about Orthodoxy.

Hi.
I was also a Traditional Roman Catholic and I'm now somewhere between an inquirer and a Catechumen in the Holy Orthodox Church. I look forward to growing in the Orthodox faith and have already learned lots from lurking around this site. God bless you on your journey.

Hi,
For me it started with study followed by a lot of prayer and eventually I came to the conclusion that the Church of Jesus Christ is the Holy Orthodox Church. There are many stumbling blocks on the road to overcome, however when you approach through prayer and sincerity of heart the journey becomes easier.
Thanks for your welcome- Im glad to be here.

we have ex-protestants too (lots) and ex-atheists and ex-mormons and i'm sure ex-everything else as well.
there are also a few interesting types who are only here to proselytise us, but they keep us mentally active, so we don't mind too much.

Greetings, new RC or almost ex-RC posters! I am too a (former) disgruntled RC...I suppose now I'm "gruntled", though not without problems. Still, better to struggle in the Orthodox faith than to struggle anywhere else (or be complacent in either). Anyway, I hope you learn much here. Smiley

Welcome! You'll fit right in. We're all disgruntled papists of one sort or another--except maybe the Jews--not sure about them.
