After years of deliberation and severe internal debate, I am finally going to request an official change of Rites within the Catholic Communion and become a Byzantine.
I avoided doing so for quite some time, because I did not manifest genuine charity towards other forms of worship within the Church. I was once a very critical and harsh judge of modern worship; requesting a Rite change then would have been intellectually and spiritually dishonest. Different folks find different venues of peace within the Church and the world, whether it is sublime chant or guitar strumming. I find my solace in the former, but as long as we all attend to those primary duties of bringing souls to Christ and performing thos eacts of mercy and charity, God will smile upon us.
Sorry for my rant, but I have found this to be a welcoming group of decent folks who listen.
