Congratulations!
"This is the cross - to become dead to the whole world, to suffer sorrows, temptations and other passions of Christ; in bearing this cross with complete patience, we imitate Christ's passion and thus glorify our God the Father as His sons in grace and co-heirs of Christ." --St. Symeon the New Theologian

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.

I'm sorry to bump such an old thread, but I figured I would inform you all that I will be declared a catechumen much further ahead of schedule than I had initially thought. The ceremony will take place two weeks from today. Pray for me, a sinner!
