Panta Axioi!
May you always be worthy!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Thank you all so much for your prayers!  We had 6 Baptisms on Lazarus Saturday.  One of our parishioners filmed a brief part of the Dance of Isaiah... so I put it on our parish YouTube page:
