Today I was recieved into the church by annointing with holy chrism. it was the best thing I've ever smelled! what a sweet aroma!
I fealt it when I recieved absolution from my sins, and that felt great. I am thankful for confession....a clean slate!
I was given a three-bar Russian cross, and I wear it proudly!
my godmother gave me a beautiful icon of the Theotokos of Vladimir, and my godfather gave me an icon of my patron, Tikhon of Moscow.
I am Orthodox, hear me roar!
I am so happy! I feel like I've been shaken awake to a new life, new me.
I also learned about the Paschal "tripple kiss". It was odd the first time, but I could get used to it.
