Well, its been a very long time since I've been an inquirer here.

I thought I would make my first post saying that I was Baptized and Chrismated, along with my Mother, on February 27th 2010. What an awesome experience that was/is! Baptism, Chrismation, the Eucharist... There's nothing like it.

Christ is risen!

many Years!
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

Thanks alot, everyone.

I received the name of St. James, the brother of the Lord. James is my first name, anyway, so I won't have to get used to it haha {although I usually go by Scott, so it can be strange being called James}. And I love St. James
