Because after my daughter goes to bed (and the house is quiet) I come here and read read read. It's almost 1:30 am and I have a lot to do tomorrow!

On a serious note, I do sincerely appreciate this site. You all have answered many questions for me, some of which I didn't know I had, and most of which were asked previously by other posters. I appreciate how respectful most posts are and I do have to say, something that turned my head toward learning about Orthodoxy was the gentleness of two Orthodox women I know from another website. One of these ladies sent me an OSB. I was so touched by her generous gesture. Before that, I was completely ignorant of what Orthodoxy is (I'm still pretty ignorant, but I ain't what I used to be!) and considered it just part of RCC.

So, thank you.  Smiley

Yes! I hear you.  Grin

I read a ton online when I was first learning about Orthodoxy (as well as ordered numerous books via inter-library loan).  At some point take the plunge!  Visit an Orthodox church -- you have to come and see to truly comprehend the vast richness of the faith.

Glory to God!  That is a refreshing thing to hear!

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams
