Good night!

I wouldn't be concerned! Generally speaking it's not necessary to add square brackets when quoting and using . . . as it's already understood. Square brackets are rarely seen.

I do intend to stylistically correct them to be . . . rather than .... as that is the standard style used throughout the site.

In my English Grammar book it says to use an ellipses of 3 periods in between words and an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences.  For this reason I used an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences with missing content.

Yes from what I read about style books, that's one suggested method, but it's rare too, I hardly remember when I've seen it actually used. I find it awkward, so I do not use the four dots. Three is enough for concatenating anything.

I am curious if a good potential fund raising procedure for Saintsworks (and similar forums) might be to offer for sale printed hard copy editions of groups of threads and sequential posts by members here.  I find myself very frequently copying the results of my searches, even though it seems I have to do a separate search in forum for a particular topic.  I don't know for certain what I would pay for a booklet of my own posts or searches, but I think I might pay $50-$100 for Martin's posts, or Odihambo's (sorry about spelling), or Shin's, and probably at least several others.  Specific topics that would seem to be of probable interest are types of prayers, aspects of church history, comments on holy places, Church Law and rules, exegesis, comments on Saints, and more.  I am wondering if it might be feasible to display collections of some of these here (in everything else) and see if interest develops.
