Ordination
« on: November 09, 2009, 10:41:38 AM »
I posted about this a week or two ago, but now that my ordination to the diaconate is this Thursday, I am asking you to all renew your prayers for me as I prepare myself for this great mystery.  I really appreciate your prayers and love.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

May the Lord God remember your Deaconate in His Kingdom.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
