Freedom!!... Sort Of. JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - June 15, 2016 ... before it was due last night. Basically, if I could study instead of doing something else, I chose to study. That means I had to decline on a couple of outings, I didn't do much reading for fun, and I was basically glued to the kitchen chair (I study best at the kitchen table).

I went ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2016/05/lack-of-concentration-during-prayer.html
Non-Orthodox Baptisms and the Ecclesiology That Follows BYZANTINE, TEXAS - May 9, 2016 ... must be baptized." Even if you disagree with the premise that recognition of heterodox baptisms is an end-run aimed at Vatican II ecclesiology, there is much to recommend the below paper. It's long (as it should be considering the topic), but worth your time. ( Pravoslavie.ru ) - With the push for a pan-Orthodox acceptance of the Pre-Synodical text, "Relations of the Orthodox Church with the Rest of the Christian World," a century long process of distortion of Orthodox ecclesiology is coming ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2016/05/non-orthodox-baptisms-and-ecclesiology.html
