Grace and Peace,

One more time I throw myself into the bosom of Holy Orthodoxy in an attempt to more fully embrace the Christian Faith. This Great Lent I have vowed to attend St. Cyprian of Carthage Orthodox Church with my children during this Great Fast and submit myself to the Traditions and Liturgy of my Eastern Brothers and Sisters in the hope that it be more pleasing to God and more healing for my wretchedness of soul and spirit.

Aid me, Pray for me, and support me for I have been in this struggle so long. I am weak and I don't trust my own guidance in these matters anymore. Far too long my mind has been an enemy to me and have served only to steer me to greater corruption of heart.

St. Ephraim, pray for me, a sinner!

Ah, a tenacious foe to be sure. :-) My poor spiritual man's advice, don't do it alone and don't be timid.

Have a spiritual father and don't let the darker forces confuse you into being timid with your faith.
