Please remember my youngest son, Matthew, in your prayers. He is entering seminary this week. He has wrestled with this decision for several years and he has some 'large' shoes to fill, following his grandfather and uncle's footsteps. O Mary, Birthgiver of God and Theotokas, intercede on Matthew's behalf, guide him and protect him with your Holy Mantle.

Is he attending Christ the Savior Seminary? I have a friend starting there as well. I am a few hours away at St. Tikhon's.

^ Thank you for asking. He really seems happy. He has said more to us the past three weeks through calls and texts than he did while living here after college!
