Please pray for catechumen hopeful
« on: April 29, 2011, 09:35:23 PM »
Hi everyone. I am new to this forum and humbly ask for your sincere prayers to help me have patience while I wait to be recognized as a catechumen and eventually baptized and chrismated into the Orthodox Church. Thank you.

Why, yes it is! Thank you for your reply and prayers. I have read some of your posts, and I can totally relate. In a society that offers so much instant gratification, I've found that this is a challenge I wasn't expecting. But as usual, I am humbled by it.  :)

Lord, have mercy!

Welcome to the Forum!
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

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
