Okay, I know the situation I'm asking about is a little unusual. (The more usual situation would be someone who is WRO, and who used to be an Anglican, or a Lutheran, etc.)

Have you know anyone who was WRO and then became Catholic? (I mean Catholic in the sense of being in communion with the Vatican -- i.e. either Latin Catholic or Eastern Catholic).

No, but I've known those who went in the opposite direction.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I heard from my priest that one of the monks who lives at San Benedetto Monastery in Norcia, Italy used to be WRO here in the States. I think they actually knew each other in seminary.

Fr. Ben Johnson, owner of the blog, is still Orthodox and is now a priest serving in the Eastern rite. I believe the other Ben was Ben Anderson who was once WRO, graduate from St. Vladimir's, and is now a Benedictine monk in Ireland in communion with Rome. Just to clarify Smiley

D'oh! Thank you for correction. Embarrassed

As for the other Ben, do you know whether he was a convert or cradle WRO?

*shrugs* I don't know. I assume after couple of decades at least some WRO folks have had kids.

Of course they exist. The Antiochian WR Vicarate has existed since 1961, and there are parish that are in continued existence since the 1970. Even if a WR parish is a few years old, you would still hope they have had a baby or two baptized during that time.

Oops. That was supposed to be "booster-seat". ("Car-seat" or "high-chair" would have also worked.)

So ... you don't know any of "booster-seat", "car-seat", or "high-chair", but you know what a "cradle" is?

It's not incomprehensible when every time you visit Saint Gregory's of the Western Rite in Washington, D.C., you almost step on a child. Seriously, during my first visit the priest had told me that attendance was low that Sunday, and on that day, toddlers and kindergarteners outnumbered three to one just about.

Now, I've yet to meet a forty year-old cradle Western Rite Orthodox Christian. In that respect I share your incomprehension.
