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.

Glory to God!

Welcome home!  How wonderful that both you and your mother were able to share such an extraordinary experience together!

God grant you both many years!

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
