After almost two years of inquiring, I was chrismated today. I don't post much, but I lurk a lot (probably more than I should Cheesy) and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here, especially the Orthodox Christians from CAF, who unwittingly helped answer questions I had.

I'm happy Grin

I did. It was more awkward than I had hoped. At the Byzantine Catholic church I used to go to, you would open your mouth and the priest dropped the Eucharist in off the spoon. Here, I guess you close your mouth around it, so I was there waiting and he was like "what is this guy doing?"

Our priest does it like the Byzantine-Catholics you've had experience with, but each priest has their own way of doing things.

Here's an awkward moment I had at St. Sophia's Cathedral in Los Angeles:

As I approached for communion, I was asked my name. The priest is accustomed to calling out "The servant of God [name]..." into the microphone very loudly, so everyone can hear everything that goes on up front.

In response to his question, I replied softly, "Justinian."
"WHAT?" he replied rather loudly.
"Justinian," I said a little louder.
"WHAT?" he cried again.
"JUSTINIAN!" I yelled back.

"AH!" he shouted, and proceeded to prepare the communion. I was accustomed to the "drop" method, while he wasn't. After a few seconds pause, he attempted to pour it off the spoon, but his aiming wasn't spot on, and it fell to the floor with a resounding splash. The two of us stared at eachother in horror for what felt like an eternity, until I hurried away back to the pew. A deacon came by after communion was over and (much to me shock) poured lighter fluid on the marble floor where it had landed and lit it on fire.

So don't worry about what happened. Because it can always be worse. Cheesy

"WHAT?" he replied rather loudly.
"Justinian," I said a little louder.
"WHAT?" he cried again.
"JUSTINIAN!" I yelled back.

"AH!" he shouted, and proceeded to prepare the communion. I was accustomed to the "drop" method, while he wasn't. After a few seconds pause, he attempted to pour it off the spoon, but his aiming wasn't spot on, and it fell to the floor with a resounding splash. The two of us stared at eachother in horror for what felt like an eternity, until I hurried away back to the pew. A deacon came by after communion was over and (much to me shock) poured lighter fluid on the marble floor where it had landed and lit it on fire.

So don't worry about what happened. Because it can always be worse. Cheesy

This story had me laughing so hard I was in tears.  Of course there is nothing funny about the Eucharist dropping to the ground, but the humor was in the situation itself.  The yelling, the waiting, the horror...

Asemănându-te obiceiurilor râvnitorului Ilie şi urmând Botezătorului pe drepte cărări, Părinte Antonie, te-ai făcut locuitor pustiului şi ai întărit lumea cu rugăciunile tale. Pentru aceasta, roagă-te lui Hristos Dumnezeu, să mântuiască sufletele noastre.

We all have a Black Dog and a White Dog inside of us. The One you feed the most eventually eats the Other.

All are tempted, but it is the courageous person who clings to God during the storm. For the Ego is a prison, but Christ is the Liberator
