20218Seeking an Akathist
- Oct 3, 2006My first post, so please forgive any mistakes
and other signs of ignorance. This group seems
to deal with subjects well beyond me at this
point, so I will be content to lurk for the most
Me: former cradle RC, Pentecostal, New Age,
whatever spiritual grab-bag, but gave RC several
good, honest tries before finding Orthodoxy.
Having had a pre-existing relationship with the
Righteous Joseph, the Betrothed, he was a natural
choice as Patron when I was baptised 3 Jul 05.
In searching for an akathist in his honor, the
only one I've found is attributed to the Kyivan
uniates. I haven't detected anything objectionable
in this text, but would like feedback from the group.
Is this text acceptable for use,
are there other options I should look at?
Please, if there are uniates in the group, no
offense is intended. If you are here, you should
be smart enough to understand, at least to some
degree, the objection to any vatican taint.
