Prayers and Praises for friend's baptism
« on: January 19, 2010, 01:58:33 AM »
A good friend of mine, Seth, is being baptized today as John for Theophany.  His patron is St. John the Forerunner, so all of this is very appropriately timed.  Anyway, remember him in your prayers today, as he has been preparing for this for several years.

Glory to God!

Glory to God.  Many years to him.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""
