Read it cover-to-cover, twice. This edition. 1995. (it got updated in 2003 but I haven’t seen that). Worked at Seton Hall University for about a year. Met with priests and professors. I took daily noon mass. Went to a lot of discussion groups on campus. I wasn’t attending – it was a job – but it was a good environment and I liked it. Day of my decision, nobody was around. I wanted to be sure I hadn’t missed any significant religions or denominations in my “religious quest”. Looked through a Yellow Pages. Found a thing called “Orthdodox Church”. Picked one, made a phone call. Set me on an entirely different course. Had I not opened the Yellow Pages, I’d probably be a Roman Catholic priest by now. No regrets.
