Our reception into the Church
« on: March 13, 2014, 10:13:46 AM »
Dear all,

Following our journey as inquirers and catechumens over the past year and a half our priest has informed us that "the time has drawn close" and at some point after Pascha we will be received into the Church.

In your mercy and charity I ask you to offer a prayer that my wife, my son and I may be worth to enter God's Holy Church.

May you all have a blessed fast.

The sinner,

Spyridon.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

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.

Lord, have mercy on your servant and his family.

Congratulations. Many Years.

Thanks be to God!!!
