I suppose officially I'm just a lapsed Catholic (like a lot of other Catholic Americans I know) since I haven't received orthodox chrismation/baptism, but I would like to become orthodox. Lately, I've been drawn to the Coptic Church in part because of the Desert Fathers (and a yearning for monasticism), but also because my Arabic is better than my Russian, so if the services are in Arabic, I can more or less follow along. The sad thing is that currently I live in a country without a Coptic Church, so I'm resorting to youtube, so I at least have something spiritual to watch and/or listen to.
My goal, when I return to America, is to finally join the church. But in the meantime, I'm hoping to make use of the internet as best I can. I'm really glad to have found tasbeha.
