I'm curious what sort of mix WRO has. In my experience, most seem to come from a Lutheran background.

We have a new WRO guy at our parish (just moved here).  I'll have to ask him what he was.  I've met many former sheep of the Vatican, recovering Episcopalians...and a number of Eastern Orthodox who just were Westernized.

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

The former Lutherans, former Anglicans and former Roman Catholics are my favourites, they typically make the transition smoothest.

The former assemblies of God, former methodists and former charismatic episcopals try my patience !! no thanks !!!  (shudders in fear)
These ones often seem not to adapt to the "higher smells and bells" of the Orthodox Church as easily but are very much alive and on fire with the faith otherwise.

I've heard that the former WR Orthodox in RC "personal ordinariate" anglican use churches are also interesting to meet   laugh Wink

Each WRO church is entirely different, but one can expect a decent number of all of the above.

"and for all who are Orthodox, and who hold the Catholic and Apostolic Faith, remember, O Lord, thy servants" - yet the post-conciliar RC hierarchy is tolerant of everyone and everything... except Catholic Tradition, for modernists are as salt with no taste, to be “thrown out and trampled under foot

I can see the smells and bells being a shock to some. As a former Catholic, it was actually one of the things I enjoyed most about becoming Orthodox.

I converted out of atheism after becoming disillusioned with Reformed Evangelicalism.

"WRO" is just a cool-sounding term or "trend" for the presence of Orthodoxy in the Western world.
