Heading to St. Vlad's Seminary
« on: February 11, 2008, 03:24:48 PM »
Hi everyone.  I recently asked for your prayers when I found out that my wife and I would be heading to St. Tikhon's Seminary next fall so I could begin studies there.  However, my bishop recently informed me that he would like me to go to St. Vladimir's Seminary instead, so I am in the process of applying now.  Please pray for Melanie and I.

Lord, have mercy!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Prayers...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
