You too, Alpo! This thread really is lovely- thank you. We have finally found our home in Christ.
I feel like a hippy at the moment (well, I am a hippy. .); I feel a deep sense of peace (actually, there are no words to describe what this feels like and I haven't touched a drop of alcohol. . . :-)).
Who did you take as your patron (or, rather, who took you)?
St. Elizabeth New martyr, Grand Duchess of Russia; Saint Elizabeth's story is one of many that inspire me (. .St. Photini, St. Kassiani, St. Photine, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Mary of Egypt) but I feel a very special connection with Saint Elizabeth of Russia. Who is your patron Saint, Alpo?
May God Bless you all - always.
