As I’ve indicated in my very short introduction, I am an Eastern Orthodox Christian who has found himself strongly attracted to the Catholic Christian Communion of local Churches, centered around the See of the blessed Apostle Peter (the “chair of unity,” cathedra unitatis). I am seriously considering a personal translation (as opposed to “conversion”*) to the communion of the Church of Rome.
I have chosen, at this point, to remain anonymous, and to withhold specific information about myself (location, jurisdiction, education, &c). This is because I am not prepared at this point to begin the formal process of changing jurisdictions. For obvious reasons, I do not look forward to the reactions from my hierarch, parish priest and Orthodox friends when they find out that I am “on the road to Rome”.
The most I can say about myself at this point is that (1) I am male, (2) I am an American citizen, (3) I am Eastern Orthodox, and (4) I am a serious inquirer into the claims of the Roman Church. God willing, I will be able to reveal more about myself soon.
Thanks to all who have left comments. I look forward to receiving both Catholic and Orthodox feedback.
* Thanks, Conor, for this excellent distinction.
