To make a very long story short, I am an adul catholic convert being baptized RO in my moms hometown but never attending a service. My mom is getting older and starting to consider going back to church. There happens to be a small Russian Orthodox church near her house but the priest terrifies her:eek: (she is elderly and quirky) there is also a large Greek Orthodox church a little further away. My first question is how similar are these churches, do you think she will feel out of place?
My second question is in the Orthodox faith do you believe in the true presence in the Eucharist? If she goes back to church will she have to go to confession. She doesn’t think so she thinks everyone can take communion and it doesn’t matter if you are in mortal sin.
Can someone please enlighten me???
