Nothing Spesh, Just Me
#1
Hello!

I am a catechumen, negotiating RCIA in England as we speak, hoping to be baptised and confirmed this coming Easter.

And it is at this juncture that I would like to express my gratitude to the owners of and contributors to Fisheaters. When I at last, after many years, turned to the Church, I knew a fair amount of philosophy but precious little regarding practical devotion and traditional praxis. My local parish, alas, has not illumined me much, either. When I wanted to learn how to genuflect and make the sign of the cross, I was forced to fall back on Google, and Google brought me here. The main site has nourished me, stimulated my interest and filled that catechetical vacuum. For that, I am deeply grateful.

Also, Fisheaters saddens me. I am saddened because so much seems to have been lost, or is being lost, in the cause of modernism or 'being in touch with the times'. I came to the church through years spent in Constantinople, and a little time spent in Rome; all that theological, philosophical and liturgical splendour is being sold, seemingly, for base coin. That is a crying pity. It is a reversible process though, I hope.

So, I guess that sense of unease and concern inclines me towards the Traditionalist end of the spectrum.
