I'm officially Orthodox!
« on: January 10, 2004, 02:14:52 AM »
Thanks to everyone for their prayers, especially to Phil, Anastasios and everyone responsible for this website, as it played a very important role in bringing me to the Orthodox Church. My Chrismation (and first Holy Communion) today was something beyond special; it's filled me with everything i ever longed for and more. I took the name John Damascene, in whose footsteps I hope to follow especially in the composition of music, defence of icons and holy Orthodoxy in general.

God bless all!

Congratulations!

God bless you, and many years, Byzantino!  And welcome home!    :)
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.
