I grew up in a nominally roman catholic but practically atheist household, began taking roman catholicism seriously in my teens and became an altar server. I had intended on becoming a priest, but I grew disillusioned with the Roman Church as I found there to be grave discrepancies between Roman doctrine and what the Roman church practically believes, and tried my luck within so-called traditionalist circles and ultimately sedevacantism. Later on, through my studies, I discovered how much roman catholicism differs from historical Christian praxis. I attempt to, despite being in a spiritual desert, hold fast to “that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, by all.” I've become, over the last six years or so, become well-acquainted with some part of Anglican history. And despite being outside the traditional influence sphere of Anglicanism, I have nonetheless managed to find myself a copy of The Shorter Prayer Book and several copies of The Parson’s Handbook in thrift stores. My interest also lies with Old Catholicism (Scranton, not Utrecht) and Eastern Orthodoxy. Nonetheless, I am interesting in learning more about Anglicanism, which is why I joined this forum.
