Chrismated Today
« on: December 18, 2010, 11:04:14 PM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

After three years of "searching" I finaly came home! I was Chrismated today before vespers. In some ways it's an end but more importantly just a begging!

Please Pray for me a sinner as I make the long hard journey to the Kingdom of God

In Christ,
Seraphim
All my hope I place in you, O Mother of God, keep me under your protection!

Welcome home!

God grant you many years!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I was baptized and chrismated today, and by coincidence also took the name Seraphim as my patron saint!

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.
