Axios to Serb1389

AXIOS for his ordination to the Holy Diaconate on the day of the Raising of Lazaros.  Many years of fruitful, fulfilling, and God-inspired ministry to our fellow OC.net-er and my dear friend and schoolmate!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

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.

Thank you all for your well wishes! 

I just wanted to let you all know that the (not so) tentative date for the ordination to the priesthood is May 30th, at the Ascension Cathedral in Oakland.  If any of you are in the area please feel free to come!
