Chrismation Soon
« on: March 17, 2013, 06:48:45 PM »
I want to let those who remember my posts a few years back know that I will be chrismated at Pascha.  With God's help, I will be focusing on that imminent moment intensely during Great Lent as I fast and prepare.  I'll check in again after Pascha just as soon as I can to let you know that it's done.  May all of you have a blessed Lenten season. 

Your brother in Christ,
Andrew

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
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.
