I thank all for their kind words of encouragement, great links, and prayers.
Congrats to you roachie as well.
This has been a wonderful period in my life, and the apologetics (albeit betimes apoplectic) on FR (neverending story) were a huge part of my education. My thanks to all the Cs and NCs who drove me to the scriptures and strengthened my convictions. I have found a wonderful traditional church in the city(NY) a block from my office for masses during the week, another blessing. Thomas Merton wrote how important it was for him to have the Eucharist every day. After so many years, I find myself similarly inclined.
Sleep now, read more later.
