Just wanted to share that in light of my newly begun catechesis, and my wife already being Orthodox, our son and daughter (3 and 1 y.o.)are being chrismated next Sunday; our priest wants to do it then, so that it can happen before Great Lent begins. (My officially becoming orthodox will be a while later, of course, God willing)

We are very happy about this; one of the things of beauty that drew me to the OC was the early all-inclusion of the littlest ones.

Thanks to many on this board who have helped me along so that our family could get to this point.

I humbly ask all of you to pray for them, and for me to be a father fit to raise my little ones in the church. Lord knows I need all the help I can get.

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

No dunking!? It is always fun to baptized the kidlets. My daughter tried to pull the priest in with her! The priest is likely safer just chrismating Cheesy

Congratulations!

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
