On the Ordination of Your Priest, Matthew
« on: October 04, 2010, 11:24:23 AM »
Please remember the newly-ordained priest, Father Matthew and his Pani, Eleni in your prayers. His ordination was yesterday and was a most beautiful and moving celebration. Axios! Axios! Axios! Many Years! Mnohaja Lit!

May the Lord be with him.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Worthy indeed!  I was disappointed that I couldn't get the Sunday off to make it to the Ordination this time, and Presvytera was going to go (she drove to Pittsburgh Sat night) but wasn't feeling well enough to attend Liturgy there that morning.  Oh, well. 

I'll let Fr. Matthew know that you all are praying for him!

You probably don't know him, unless you get around in ACROD circles a lot, or unless you've camped at Camp Nazareth in the last 6 or so years.

"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.
