As a reference I thought it would be nice to list the different liturgical rites present in the Catholic Church today. There is a good outline available on EWTN. Since my interest has been peaked somewhat I may try to look at each of these rites in it's own post, probably on my other blog though.

If one comes to the decision that protestantism/evangelicalism doesn't work because one is always having to decide what one is to believe based on one's own personal interpretation, and that one should be therefore either Catholic or Orthodox, how does one *decide* whether to be Catholic or Orthodox, when the whole point of leaving protestantism/evangelicalism is to give up the burden of having to *decide* what to believe?
