Hello my friends,

I use to RC at one time but I converted back in January 7, 2001 it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I found Pease of mine and heart in the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church which can only be found in the Orthodox Christian Church. No matter how much the Devil tries to destroy the Church, he can never destroy it's faith and mission of bringing the faith in Jesus Christ to the whole world.

I found the One true faith in the Holy Orthodox Catholic Church founded by our LORD.

AMEN TO THAT

Hello again,

The Orthodox Christian Church has a deep impact on my life as a Christian, it has truly changed my life in many ways. My family is Italian many from Southern Italy and I found out that at one time that of the world a strong hold of the Orthodox Christian faith. Joining the Orthodox Christian Church is like I've come home to right faith.

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

Hello my friend's

Thank you for your warm greetings it's good to be home in the Orthodox Christian Church. My family is Italian like I said,  my mother must have been eastern rite Christian faith because of the traditions that she would teach me like putting my first three fingers together and folding my last when making the sign of the cross. Her family came from Sicily and that part of Italy had a very strong Orthodox Christian past. My father's family is from Southern Italy from Avello area. When I started to see about the Orthodox Christian faith I was deeply moved by the Orthodox Christian Church faith.  When I started to learn more about my culture and see that Orthodox Christianity was in that of Italy then I began to understand that it was part of Italy history and culture.  I'm deeply happy to have found my faith in the Holy Orthodox Catholic Church founded by our LORD.

God bless you my brother's and sister's.

Keep me in your prayers everyone.  I plan on meeting with an Orthodox priest as well as a Catholic priest.
