Baptism Today
« on: March 06, 2010, 01:14:29 PM »
Please say a prayer for my wife Virginia who will be Baptised and Chrismated today (Rocor).

She will take  the name Elizabeth after the Grand Duchess.

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

Congratulations and Many Years to you and her! :)

The Baptism was very moving.. The Priest teared up a bit .

Elizabeth took her first communion today.. She has not stopped smiling since the Baptism.

Several non-Orthodox friends of her's attended. One older woman who has been a lapsed Catholic was very animated in her approval. She said that we do things right, no rushing through things !!

Ain't that the Truth.

Thank you for your prayers.
