Greetings, and glory to Jesus Christ.
A little background, I was once a traditional Latin-rite Catholic but have since found my home in the Ukrainian Catholic Church. I am now Byzantine to the bone, with one exception; I use the Douay-Rheims Bible. I simply do not trust any other English translation, even the modern Catholic Bibles. I understand that the Byzantine Churches have always used the original Greek New Testament and the Septuagint Old Testament, so if I could find a traditional Catholic-approved Bible using those texts, I would. However, there are none. Is it too “un-Byzantine” of me to use the Douay-Rheims Bible? I feel like using it is a betrayal of my newfound Byzantine home, but I just can’t trust any modern Bible, especially not one that uses the corrupted Masoretic text for the Old Testament and the scholastic guess work of the New Testament “Critical Text”. Thoughts?
