Orthonorm is a saint
« on: October 24, 2011, 04:51:49 PM »
The priest said "you are sanctified" at his chrismation this past sunday. He is a saint according to the biblical use of the word.

May God grant him many years and perseverance in the faith.
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

If only he knew how long I've been looking for the Cross pendant that perfectly says Orthodoxy.

There's one or two I've found, but they are pectoral Crosses in museum collections.

In all seriousness, thanks to all here at OC.net who run the place and everyone who has been of help along the way.

And I wanted it noted that my first miraculous act as a hypervert is not bringing augustin's scorn upon me.

Their altar area is a really cool reproduction. Definitely not LARPing; that's full SCA.

Good job?

I took your meaning. While not the paragraph of how my reception into the Church has altered your life, I hope to have read . . .

Thanks.

I think Peter was concerned it was a flippant remark. Which is kind on his part, but OK on my side.

Congrats orthonorm, i hope you celebrated.

As was pointed out, I did make a baby cry . . .

Actually, within the next hour, I made a young girl rather sour toward me as well. It's lovely relationship but sometimes stormy. We had a disagreement about the suitability of a crayon for eating.

Really, there is not much of a problem with the eating of canyons as such. But she insisted on wanting to try to eat the entire thing at once. She wouldn't compromise with just taking bite sized pieces.

But it all ended on a good note with a well-mannered discussion about the dangers of putting one's fingers through the grating around a moving fan and whether to attempt such feats even when the fan is not moving, to trying to determining the amount of plastic Easter Eggs in a container without actually counting them.

I don't quite see how the various decisions for Christ work in orthodoxy but any step towards is a party waiting to happen #smiles

It was the final step. There are no more. One should care now only to to reverse.

Here is a fun fact. Some people will tell you that asparagus makes one's urine smell differently but not everyone's.

Wrong.

Some people just can't smell the change of odor in the urine.

Asparagus alters the odor of everyone's urine.

(Like most things this is debated, but the above is pretty conclusive. We test for the ability among certain folks at where I work.)

Let me just say, you don't have to be actively sniffing to realize anything.

Or my mother has completely affected my attitude. I used to never pay attention, but she's a nurse who does a lot of diagnostic work and troubleshooting in surgery, and she told me that there are a bunch of diseases and conditions that you can identify by the change in your...excrement. It's helped me numerous times beat PAs or NPs to diagnosing what was wrong with me at the time.

Sorry, orthonorm. This is a bad direction for your saint thread. But I thought a little free medical advice was needed.

Yeah, I was afraid I might damn myself there. I really do wish orthonorm many years of holiness and perseverance in the Orthodox Church, but his posts do force me to ensure that when I cross myself or use Orthodox terminology I have some real intent behind it, and that I'm not just doing it because that how the Orthodox do it and the Orthodox are SO COOL. I suppose I can really only thank him for that, and I certainly hope for many more years of such challenges.

Well, to be fair, adopting any new custom is weird at first. Don't do it for show or just to fit in, but don't think TOO much about it, either. I'm self-conscious about wearing a covering at church, and I actually used to cover every single day for 2 years! That's too much to the point where I'm worried about "looking" like a LARPer, to beat that dead horse of a term.

So you think Jesus was two persons!  Blasphemy!  Everyone knows you must wear only ONE prayer rope per wrist, as Jesus was ONE person, not TWO!  Alternatively, you may wear one prayer rope that you drape across your chest like machine gun bullets.  Either is acceptable.  However, should you wear the rope around your body, you must wear one rope on each wrist, in representation of the Holy Trinity!  This is the faith of the Fathers!

Monophysite heretic! I wear one over each shoulder crossing over my chest to proclaim the two natures hypostatically united in the one person of Christ. It also recalls the holy martyrdom through which St Andrew the apostle and first-called followed Christ.

Was it sleeping on boards in Holy Russia?! No it was not! Newly illumined are expected to levitate in a nightly prayer/trance. "Sleep" is pagano-latin concept!
Yea it's pray without ceasing from now on.

I recommend he go to Kiev and have himself walled in like an Anchorite. Only in Jason's case, the salvation of others demands he smuggle in a smartphone with twitter until he's dispensed enough holy wisdom for me to make a mint in book deals on for us to attain his level of sanctity.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Many years!

(Does saying it like that make me a LARPer?)

Any thing done out of love is beyond pretend and believable.

Shane's got a run for his money.

Isn't it funny how we pay the homeless in change, but we never thank them when they pay us with the kingdom?

Oh do I have a story for you about "Shane". It is actually my first miracle as a hypervert and there were witnesses. Not incurring augustin's wrath or apathy was my second.

I don't think orthonorm finds Tupac all that great (and to be fair, I don't either).

I'd imagine that Tupac stands right around Plato in terms of priority on orthonorm's "people I'd bring back from the dead if I could." list.

From the various smells of urine, LARP, babies crying, Tron guy, GJ, orthonorm's baptism...is there not another thread that brings all of us together out of love?

Might be OC.net's most important thread.

Also I'm disappointed you don't have Ice Cube and his entourage at your baptism.

I thought he wasn't into that Nation of Islam thang anymore. Prob needed to drop it to get some family movie-cred going in Jewollywood.

Or atleast that's what Mel tells me.

I wish Em contacted you before making Relapse, something about his new records aren't slim shady at all.
