I agree with that. I was brought up on the belief that the Roman church taught a work’s salvation message, which was counter to the gospel.

I finally had to read the Cathechism for myself to see that wasn’t exactly what the church taught.

I’ve read much — Newman, Chesterton, Belloc, Scott Hahn, Patrick Madrid, Thomas Howard, Mark Shea, and others — and, the more I do, the more I see that folks from my tradition and the Roman tradition have much to celebrate. It is a particular joy to me that my Presbyterian church joins with Lutherans, Episcopalians and Catholics on Palm Sunday. Even though I had to confess, when I became a deacon, that I look to no one (we’re talking Pope here) to stand between me and God.

So, now I feel something like a Cathlotyrian!
