Here is another article by Fr Gregory Cognetti on his path of conversion from Roman Catholicism to Orthodox Christianity.
Father Gregory Cognetti fell asleep in the Lord on Holy Tuesday, April 14, 1998. He established an Orthodox parish in Palermo, Italy, under the jurisdiction of Russian Orthodox Church, and led the parish in times of great difficulty for the faithful.
The text that follows is a testimony of his integrity and commitment of faith in the revival of Orthodoxy in Italy.

I would like to share with you a brief letter that was published some time ago in an Italian Orthodox parish newsletter. Its author, Archpriest Gregorio Tognetti (former Catholic, now an Orthodox priest), is the Dean of the Italian parishes under the Moscow Patriarchate. This letter was generally liked by the Italian Orthodox converts, and also received a high degree of appreciation among some cradle-born Orthodox (it was, for instance, translated into Romanian); I hope it may be prove an interesting reading and a source of inspiration for all of you.
Unless otherwise specified, the articles here are posted by Father Aleksey, who has no sense of humor and is extremely straight forward.
