God bless, angeltime :heart:

Thank you for your kind words and insight. For me, given the current crises, Orthodoxy draws me for one very strong reason. Others have posted that we should keep to our parishes/dioceses and to keep away from the terrible madness at the top. That's a good apporach. But ultimately, as Catholics, we have to heed the single top (Rome/pope). It's dogma. Thus, the aforementioned localism is impossible. In Orthodoxy, the localism, detached from the machinations from the rulers, is actually possible. That is, at least to me, a big positive. Poland, for example isn't bound to the liberalism of the Phanar. But, this is my journey. I may be ultimately wrong, but I am willing to be judged by God for seeking right belief rather than right structure.
