Prayers for Julia Tatiana
« on: May 23, 2005, 05:21:58 PM »
Please pray for Julia and her three year old daughter, Tatiana. Julia is a baptised Orthodox Christian who currently reforming her life after a long period of drug abuse and prostitution. I will be baptising Tatiana next month. Julia is currently estranged from her (rather wealthy) family. The invitation to Tatiana's baptism will be the first time Julia's family have heard from her in many years.

Thank you all for your prayers, and please keep them up.
Just to clear any confusion I may have caused (as pointed out by a personal message) I am not a priest. In Greek, the Sponsor is said to Baptise the candidate- I will be Tatiana's Godfather.
I'm just a Capitalist pig of a businessman, and I met Julia and Tatiana in one of my shops (a takeaway food shop).

Prayers, hope it all goes well.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Glory to God!
The handmaiden of God, Tatiana was Baptised and Chrisimated today.
Julia's step mother attended along with other family and friends.
Her Father and brothers did not attend- but hopefully a reunion with them will be mediated by her step mother.
Tatiana will receive her first Communion tomorrow- God willing.
Thank you all for your prayers.
