Christ is Risen!

I was chrismated yesterday morning, before the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil.  Thanks be to God!  No words can describe how happy I am.

Christ is risen!

Everyone, thank you so much for the good wishes.  I pray for God's blessings upon all of you.

Subdeacon Thomas,  part of me still wonders whether I'm dreaming.  Please let Fr. Aidan and Father Deacon Basil know.  We're no longer overseas; we're in North Carolina.  One day soon, I hope to visit Austin and return to St. John's to participate in the Divine Liturgy with you.  That will be a blessed day. 

Your brother in Christ,
Andrew
