My Chrismation and Ordination
« on: September 21, 2008, 10:06:22 PM »
Friends.

His Eminence Archbishop Paul, has called me, to be chrismated and ordained as sub-deacon when he arrives in Davao to hold liturgy. Please pray that such things may come to pass, especially that Im having problems coping up with the situation, because papa is against it. I pray that God will grant them a change of heart.

Please pray for me.

+Glory to God!  The Philippines are in desperate need of indigenous clergy to bring the Gospel to them.  I have interacted online with a Philippine young teen boy who lives in a small village where there is no Orthodox parish (only a Catholic one).  He has such an intense desire to enter into Holy Orthodoxy.  May God grant you strength and peace to do His will and help young men like him to enter the True Church, the Home of the True Faith.

+Lord have mercy!

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Thank you so much for your prayers! They are a comfort.. I think papa, is now mellow on the issue, but recent controversies on the vicariate are troubling me. Regardless, i still wish to be chrismated even if the leader's of my church are being filled accusations (i dont know if they are tru or not), I follow the call of God, and of His Eminence. I really hope Im doing the right thing.  :'(

Lord have MErcy.

PS. Do any of you have suggestion for my name on my chrismation? Just PM me.. Thanks so much!
