My Chrismation
« on: July 10, 2010, 09:12:42 PM »
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I will be chrismated next Saturday, July 17, 2010, St. Marina's feast day.  I am very happy, excited, and nervous, all at the same time!  ;D  Please pray for me.

Congratulations!

Many Years!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thank you all. It's the most profound step I've taken in my spiritual life, and I thank God for opening my eyes.

Congratulations.

I was chrismated yesterday, and received my first communion today.  I am finally Orthodox!  :D

Thank you, Brothers and Sisters, for all your prayers and well wishes.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
