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.

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!

OUR priest?  Is this Fr. Matthew someone we know?

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.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
