Thank you, CARZ. This happens every day? That sounds very convenient for me.Mass is the continuing celebration of the 'Last Supper' where Jesus commanded his apostles / disciples " do this in remembrance of Me." It is the gathering of the faithful to pray, give thanks and receive the Body and Blood of Christ as He instructed. I believe it is the same for both Roman and Orthodox Catholics. Orthodox hold the Pope in high esteem with their Patriarch. Also called the 'Eastern' rite because it was established by the apostles that traveled to the area around Greece as opposed to the ones that went to the area around Rome.
I still haven't been able to make it to the Methodist church yet (and I know I'm going to have to do a little work to get myself in a state where I can start visiting the Orthodox one), so it seems like the Catholic one may be my next visit.
Marvelous! Thank you, RoosterOnAStick. I'm glad to hear from you.Ah nice!
I myself am Orthodox and I am familiar with this archdiocese and it is legit. It was actually the one I started off at when I first became Orthodox about eight years ago. I was in the Mid-Atlantic Diocese and eventually I wound up at a different Orthodox Parish but this is where I first learned about it.
I will definitely be looking into this, thank you.I'm not sure how much you have read into the Orthodox Church so far, but there are a few good introductory resources if you want to look into it further. In particular, there is an English Bishop, Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, who has a lot of good introductory videos and books. There are other theologians as well as the readings from the Ancient and Modern Church fathers of course.
Thank you, JOJ650s. I will definitely keep this in mindThough yes, regardless of church, the Bible will always be there to act as a plumb line to help test accuracy. ^-^
