Hello, I am Spanish. My blesed to all.
First of all, my appologyce for my poor english.
From many years, I was looking for, to meet coptic persons on Spain, but Spain has not fluenty people coptic.
There is a small community near from my house in "Torrevieja", but they never answer my emails.
May be, because I am Catholic, and there are many differences, between eastern and western people. (I don't known).
I am catholic, but I am feel like if not were Catholic. For me, God is God, * the same * for everybody. My faith says: not consider discrimination to anyone. My faith says some things that are not common for Catholic believers, (but also for others Christian Churchs), so I feel discriminated in any whatever place, because the world just look at your own world and those who seek God, are discriminated because they just looking for things and God's interests.
In my point of veiw, there are two peoples: one that looking the truth in his own, and others, that (says the same), but obeying to all. Really is it very good (and sant), to obeying to all, but there is a internal voice of God (in you conscience!). Is it, so easy to disobey the rules of you Church, but is it more difficulty to obey to you own conscience! so: What is the easiest way and the most difficult? What says the gospel?
And (of couse), is more easy to obey to all, forgetting you conscience, and say you need to obey, as an excuse.
Sorry, all I've said, has many differents point of view, (I know). There is not enough time here, to clarify.
Anyway, I am here, because I want to learn many things, and From Coptic, I love all. They has the most beautifully Icons, I have never seeing and has more antique rituals on Divine Lithurgy. From they, I love all.
since I am rejected always, I hope to find some friends here, to learn many things of yours, and if anybody need something from me or my wife, no hesitate to saying.
Thanks for all, and Apologice if some word o phrases, are not understand, my languaje (fluently is in Spanish), and I cannot to write or speak very well in English.
Blessed to all.
