Hello!
« on: February 12, 2015, 01:55:00 AM »
Hi

My name is Taj. I was raised a catholic. My father was a Syro-Malankara but because we're from Australia my experience is almost exclusively Roman catholic.

My mother was an orthodox jew which makes me a jew too.

I myself am not a believer anymore, yet I am fascinated by online catholic communities. I don't participate in these discussions, but I thought I should just identify myself.

Take care

Taj

Welcome and thanks for introducing yourself.  :D
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Hello!

There are syromalabar  rites offered in my diocese.    I've never been though.

Welcome!

Welcome.  I am fascinated by online communities too.  I did a paper on the subject back in the early 90s.  Lucky for me, it was a much smaller topic back then.

Hi and welcome!

      Well, we will just have to pray that you re-convert then! ;)

God bless you!

Welcome Taj.

I'm also Australian and a Catholic. Feel free to ask anything. Generally for us Australians all the responses will occur over night or in the morning so during the day we have the floor. :)

God Bless
