I just wanted to let everyone on this blessed forum know that this sunday, before liturgy, I'm being enrolled as a catechuman.  I'm so grateful to GOD for leading me to Orthodoxy, it's changed my life!

Glory to God! This is blessed news!

My prayers are with you. The road ahead will be full of great joys and serious tribulations. But Our Lord will be with you at all times. Just remember to keep your eyes upon the Cross, and trust in His Church. Remain a little child- humble, needy, dependent upon His mercy which endureth forever.

I rejoice with you. Smiley

I thank you very much!  as another person pointed out on another of my questions, we all have crosses, but must remember that God will help us carry them if we only ask.  :-)

thanks very much again!   Grin

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Congratulations to you, and may God grant you many years.

I will keep your catechism in my prayers, and I ask that you all keep me, a sinner, in yours.
