I have resisted with great difficulty, especially over the last five years, the recognition that I could no longer give an answer convincing to others or to me as to why I was not a Roman Catholic.

This decision is the result of many years of prayer, reflection, conversation, and, I firmly believe, the leading of the Holy Spirit.
