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.

God grant you many years.
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

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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!

Btw, Western or Eastern parish? Not that it really mattered anything but I recall reading that you attended WR parish.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

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
