To all,

Today my two little ones, James and Annie, were chrismated and took their first communion ever at the cathedral we attend here in St. Petersburg. He is 3 and she is 1. My son was happily making the sign of the cross throughout the day.

I am humbled, touched and truly grateful to see our family come closer to being united in the Orthodox Church. If the Lord sees fit, I am to join my wife and children at the end of Great Lent.

Thank you all for your help always in my journey, and please pray for us!
In Christ,
Jim

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.

Glory to God! I pray the Lord keep and preserve your family during this Holy Lent.
