Ungrateful Biped

« on: April 02, 2011, 12:55:24 AM »

After many consultations with the clergy at the parish I attend, we recently set a date for my Baptism (it's soon!).  While I'm very excited at the prospect of being received into the Church, I believe I have many unresolved issues, and that my doubts concerning the Christian faith and aspects of Orthodoxy have recently magnified.

Please pray for me, along with the others to be received, as we approach these important dates.  Also, if it is in accordance with God's will, pray that my patron saint be revealed to me.  I will be baptized as John.

Thanks very much.

Lord have mercy on and illumine the work of Your Hands.

Lord, have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
