Axios!  Many Years!  May he blossom in God's vineyard, and prune the vine so it produces more fruit!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Many years.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

A son of the Church, vouched for by the clergy and the laity, and the laying on of hands of Bishop Gregory.  Only one thing to say...  Axios Axios Axios!

Father Patrick at All Saints was saying many of his parish were going there. I didn't know.

Axios!

Btw, I think I posted how I was disappointed to find St. Michael's original Church, and saw that it had been made into a Baptist Church.  I was glad to find out that the parish had just moved, and had a larger Church (a number of years afterwards I went there one St. Michael's day for my son's namesday).  Now I'm happier, because the original Church is again Orthodox (a Romanian Old Calendarist parish).
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

Many years!  Fr. Jonathan is a man with a pure heart, gentle spirit, willingness to serve, and overflowing love for Christ.  He will be a credit to the priesthood and a blessing for his parish(es).  AXIOS!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
