Before Thy Cross we bow down in worship O Master!

I just recently told my grandma of my intention to convert to orthodoxy and she's taking rather hard so please keep her in your prayers that she may come to accept it and understand it.


In Christ,

David

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.

Lord Have Mercy!

Altar Server,

Pray to the Theotokos to intercede for you and your grandmother in that she will be able to understand your decision.  You will be surprised, much as I was.

Liturgically yes I've taken her to an eastern catholic church but theologicaly no even though I tried to explain in an overview and invited her to services and to talk to my priest because he could explain it better.
