I was raised in the Roman Catholic tradition and still regularly attend services. I cannot say that I believe 100% of the dogma but I get meaning from the ritual, literature, and a lot of the teachings. As I said in an earlier post I tend to interpret the readings and sermons from the perspective that God or perhaps a piece of God resides in each of us and this is our inner most self or soul. So on Ash Wednesday when they talk about the "Father who sees in secret" - I hear this as my true self. I don't rule out the separate entity looking down on me. I think the two forms can exist at the same time.
