Hi everyone,
I am a convert to Orthodoxy from Catholicism. For various reasons, I now find myself considering (seeking and yearning) for communion with Rome once again. I do not want to make this decision lightly. It took me years to leave in the first place. All along the way I kept telling myself I should reach out to Steve Ray. I wanted to debate (for the purpose of my understanding) someone who I had no possibility of making them question their faith. I wanted to give my biggest questions and obstacles to someone who could answer them with enough detail to quell my concerns, etc. I regret never having done that. I'm hoping to find that dialog here now after the fact. I will not disparage either Church. To me the question isn't as black and white as many on either side make it. My only goal is to understand where God wants me.

Hi! Contrary to the banner at the top, this message board is no longer hosted by Steve Ray as far as I am aware. He handed the reins over to Ave Maria Radio (Al Kresta) recently, and I've never seen him post. But hopefully you can still find dialog here or elsewhere.

Steve Ray is right now in Italy. He keeps traveling all the time. You can visit his site:

http://www.catholic-convert.com

I have visited Orthodox churches in Greece and in Russia.

Welcome to DCF!

Thank you for the welcomes. I don't expect to dialogue directly with Steve Ray, but it seems appropriate to come to his forum to work through what I wanted to do years ago. :)

Confession is listed in the Catechism under "Sacraments of Healing," and that wasn't a new classification invented in 1980.
