I am a practicing Catholic. I say practicing because yes I attend church on a regular basis, however I do not agree with all the teachings and rules of the Catholic church. I also do not believe that you must attend church to be "intune" with God. I think that the Catholic church has far too many rules and restrictions, but I was raised Catholic so that is why attend.
My favourite gospel is the Gospel according to Thomas......it is the most interesting and the most eye opening (in my opinion)
