I have been in a ongoing discussion on another board with a member of the Orthodox Catholic Church.
What a great guy, a great Christian….. I have a lot of respect for our separated brethen in the Orthodox faith because of him.
Well…. now to my point/question:
How much do you know about Orthodoxy? I must admit that I was clueless, but I’m a convert (1 yr anniv. this week) so maybe others have a different education about them.
Are you aware of what we disagree on?
Do you care?
Thanks for helping my curious nature ” title=”Very Happy” />
Father Peyton pray for us!

All I really know about Orthodoxy (besides cultural differences between them and the Roman Church, but that can be said for the Eastern Rites as well) is that we disagree on papal primacy (in a sense) and the filioque.
Other than that I guess I consider them nearly identical.
Yes, I do care. Please enlighten me. ” title=”Very Happy” />April 21, 2005 at 12:41 pm #4270
Peace be with you Jon and SOGFPP,
I was curious too and found this comparison[/url:wkrq4esr] from the Orthodox Church themselves. It helped me to better understand the separation. The also have a Roman Catholic help page[/url:wkrq4esr], they say we are heretics because of our Papal Supremacy traditions. Not sure how I feel on that accord. ” title=”Confused” />April 24, 2005 at 7:21 pm #4331
Ted, this would be a good place for you to start sharing our differences.
PS-For those of you who haven’t read his Intro. Ted is a an Orthodox Catholic.April 25, 2005 at 10:14 pm #4338
Hope you’re having a wonderful day. I tried to touch on some of the differences between Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism in my Introduction. I overdid it in that post, and I have no intent to re-write it. ” title=”Very Happy” />
I’ll post the link so you guys can resort to that. If anything doesn’t make sense, or you’d like to discuss some of the stuff that was written, I’m more than willing ot discuss it.
Talk to you soon, and warmest regards.

I think there is too much to discuss in just one thread so I am going to take your original post and break it down into multiple threads so that it is specific by topic.
This seems like the easiest, most straightforward way to do it. ” title=”Smile” />
I’ll start with about 5 and we’ll go from there.June 7, 2005 at 10:58 am #4977
I read your introduction and it seemed good, but you’re right it was pretty long and heavy!
I’ll now go and look to the other threads that have been split off from this one.

Yeah, as you’ll have already noticed now, having seen the the break-down of my introduction and the larger posts I’ve written on the topic of Papal Authority/Supremacy, I have difficulty expressing myself with few words. I get excited and tend to just ramble at the mouth. I just came back today, and I didn’t even realize that there were several new posts in many areas. I didn’t even realize it. Usually, I’m notified by e-mail from aboutcatholics.com when one of the threads gets updated, but I haven’t received any, so I was a little overwhelmed myself when I came by just a few minutes ago. Surely, there is a lot, and I probably shouldn’t add to that vast amount with my big mouth. ” title=”Smile” /> As you can see, my posts tend to lack temperance sometimes. Again, welcome to the board! I am going to try to contribute something (hopefully not too overwhelming, in the areas that have been generating some discussion). To everyone else, I hope everyone is well, and having a great night. I hope to answer the posts that were directed to me soon.
The least in Christ,
