I got "The coffee pot" and "coffee and donuts" mixed up and introduced myself in the wrong place.

Hi.

I'm a former diocesan executive. Catholic convert from Southern Baptists.

Lost my faith while working in the Church for all the typical reasons. Have partially got it back through traditionalism.

I'm still messed up and very unsure about the future.

But everyone here seems really nice so far.

Most of us are, especially after we have had our coffee for the day. :tinfoil:

I'm the mean one. Just watch out for me and you'll be okay.

Welcome!

In Scandinavian cultures the coffee pot was considered a sign of welcome. So your confusion is understandable! "Stay awhile and have a cuppa"

Welcome WalkingWounded, hope you enjoy your stay. You're in my prayers.

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"

Crap, there goes our reputation.  We'll have to do better.

Welcome to the forum.

Hello and welcome!

I've been following along with your topics..I'm much the same but I never worked for "the organization".
I keep quiet on here mostly.
"They" look at you like you are crazy for even thinking that something is wrong. And..I don't want them speaking for the faith.
Good people here for sure.

If thou wilt receive profit, read with humility, simplicity, and faith, and seek not at any time the fame of being learned.

A.O.L. Is very quiet, so am I....when I'm sleeping!

"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers
