Dear Friends,

Today I was received into the Orthodox Church by Chrismation and Holy Communion. It has been many years since I began my journey toward Orthodoxy, with many detours on the way. I now feel at peace that I have come into the True Faith.

In Christ,
Tony

Congrats! I'm glad you feel at peace where you are now.  I'm an RC, am I allowed to be happy at such a conversion to Orthodoxy? hehe Roll Eyes

With all my prayers for your happiness, yours and everyone else's  Smiley

Ditto per Hypo,

I just like to plagiarize my Polish brother's works, still praying to get off the fence myself, so many choices, so little time.

Slava Isusu Christu,

James, my half-Polish brother, it must really hurt to keep sitting on that fence by now, especially if it is a picket fence or a chain-link fence!   Wink
