I am a cradle Roman Catholic. I grew up in a conservative Novus Ordo parish. I became attached the Traditional Mass and sometimes attended a Melkite Church in college.

A few years ago I had a crisis of faith and nearly converted to Eastern Orthodoxy via ROCOR. Some of you might have seen me post under the same username on an Orthodox forum. I did not convert, and returned to the Catholic Church. I don't really feel like I fit anywhere anymore. I try to unite both East and West in my own heart. I try to understand Latin doctrine in a way that is amenable to the East. I am newly married and have a baby girl on the way. For her sake, I wish I was more at peace about where I am spiritually.

I am moving soon. I've been attending a Traditional Latin Mass regularly, but I think my plan is to start attending a Ruthenian Divine Liturgy on Sundays, and go to traditional Latin Mass occasionally during the week.

Please pray for me, a sinner.
