Please pray for me.

Today my friend and I got into a deep discussion about confession and saints.  I think I was able to teach her something, and she said she wanted to talk about this again.  People around us (even from across the room) were listening to our conversation.

When someone talks about Christ at school, it's like your shaken awake because it's such an unusual subject to hear spoken about. 

I hope that God won't let me give the wrong information!!!!

"At the Last Judgment I will not be asked whether I satisfactorily practiced asceticism, nor how many bows I have made before the divine altar. I will be asked whether I fed the hungry, clothed the naked, visited the sick, and the prisoner in his jail. That is all I will be asked." - Sv. Maria Skobotsova

Prayers for you.

You don't have to be able to give an answer off the top of your head, so as much as you have to know where to go to find the relevant info. In your case, Met. Kallistos Ware's The Orthodox Church and The Orthodox Way are your best bets.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
