Welp, here it goes.

Welp, my baptism date has finally been set. I will be received into the Church, via Baptism, on 2 DEC of this year. Of special significance to me, two days later is 4 DEC, the feat of the Entry of the Theotokos into the Temple, which is the day I was made a catechumen last year.

Congratulations and Many, Many Years!!!
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.

Mravaljamier!

It's a most auspicious day, Dec. 2 (N.S.) being, IIRC, the repose date both of Elder Cleopa of Romania and Elder Porphyrios of Greece.

Congratulations!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Asemănându-te obiceiurilor râvnitorului Ilie şi urmând Botezătorului pe drepte cărări, Părinte Antonie, te-ai făcut locuitor pustiului şi ai întărit lumea cu rugăciunile tale. Pentru aceasta, roagă-te lui Hristos Dumnezeu, să mântuiască sufletele noastre.
