How do convert my Catholic gf to Orthodoxy?

>gf is a devout cradle Filipino Catholic
>She prays and goes to church and all that but doesn't understand theology at all
>I criticized her for praying at Shinto shrines in Japan and doing astrological nonsense, but she thinks I'm imposing my Orthodoxy on her
How do I get her to care about church history and theology, and get her baptised into Orthodoxy?

    Be a better Christian than she is. If you reasoned into faith, you can reason out of it. Become a vessel for the Holy Spirit and the Father will call her through your humility.

    Introduce it to her gradually and gently. Get some books on the orthodox basics like catechisms by St Philaret, St Velimirovich and St Peter Mogila and discuss the subjects in it with her about it and share perspectives to see if she's interested.

    Filipino Catholicism unlike Orthodoxy has a large syncretist streak that allows witht mixing with other religions and the previous religions in the Philippines before Catholicism. That's why, Our Lady of Guidance of Manila doubles as the Virgin Mary and a Tagalog Diwata (From Hindu Devata).

      This is true, if you are not praying to the Most High or going to an Orthodox (or failing that a Catholic) Church yourself, I'm sorry but she's likely closer to Christ than you are.

      The problem is she's not doing either, astrology is declared to be wicked within the Church and in the Bible.

      God certainly cared when in the Old Testament His people worshipped at foreign altars and in front of idols. God is one, but the demons are many.

      Be a better Christian than she is. If you reasoned into faith, you can reason out of it. Become a vessel for the Holy Spirit and the Father will call her through your humility.

      Best advice

      Introduce it to her gradually and gently. Get some books on the orthodox basics like catechisms by St Philaret, St Velimirovich and St Peter Mogila and discuss the subjects in it with her about it and share perspectives to see if she's interested.

      Second best advice

      The fact you know she is Catholic and you want to baptize her tells me you are LARPing

      lol any proper orthodox would know you she can't be baptized twice, you are probably just an ex baptist amerishart LARPing as orthodox for the aesthetic, and she's probably closer to God than you

      You don't know Orthodoxy.
      Catholic sacraments are considered invalid so Catholics are often baptised when joining Orthodoxy

    The three wise men who came to Jesus at birth were astrologers. They used astrology to know it was him.

      It's closer to modern astronomers predicting a solar eclipse. The example of the three magi shows us that Christ came to fulfill not only the hopes of the Israelites, but of all humanity, and that even their pagan religions and customs pointed to him. This is a point the first apologists would continually make to convert the Romans by pointing to their philosophers. It was not to say "Hey, that thing you're doing? It's actually totally good and God approves." But rather that the time has come to make a switch for the better.

    Catholic to Orthodox conversions and vice versa aren't usually seen as a big deal. Just convince her it's practically identical to Catholicism

      They aren't seen as a big deal by Catholic clergy, they are seen as a big deal by most Orthodox clergy.

        I'm talking about the lay perspective. My Catholic church has a Russian Orthodox family (there are very few Russians in my area) who are so involved that one of the members is on the board of auditors in our church. The Orthodox that I've been to church festivals for also invited me to their services
