I'm in
« on: June 19, 2005, 05:06:20 PM »
This morning I was chrismated and received into the Orthodox Church.  Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support. 

BTW, I was all excited to be taking the catechumen out of my profile but the religion thing seems to have disappeared???

Yes, I'm now the newly illumined Anna.  My middle name is Ann and I've always considered St. Ann (Mary's mother) to be my patron saint.  I also considered St. Genevieve (French for Jennifer) but decided to stick with Anna.

Yes, Congrats.  Now, the realy battle begins...to persevere and STAY Orthodox.  Unfortunately, with so many people moviing away (economic reasons) and those that have actually lapsed or left the Church from my parish over the past year, this challenge is especially on my mind.

Big Congrats!
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...

Hey are the same guy from the Crowhill board?  I just popped over there to see if there was a response to my announcement.  There are 7 pages of responses!  Seriously.   :o  All of the Catholics are offended because I wrote that I renounced my former delusions.  All I was doing was reporting what happened during the liturgy and all hell broke out.  A good example of why it's best not to discuss religion on-line.

Jennifer,

Congratulations!!!!  If you get the chance, describe your day for us!

Also, may you get the joy of putting "Orthodox" in your box here!

Did you ever get that pedicure you were thinking about?  lol   I'm sure that was the furthest from your mind during your Chrismation.

I'm really happy for you!    I have no doubt you will ever fall away!

The shocked face is supposed to be a smiley, I put it in the old fashioned way, and that is what came up.   It's that old colon thing.

Congratulations, Jennifer; I'm sorry I didn't see this thread earlier, but I've been rather busy lately.  God bless you.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Hi Irene.  No I didn't get a pedicure but I did paint my toenails. 

It was very nice.  Although I didn't really feel different after it.  You think it's going to be some spiritual thing but God doesn't work like that.  I got a little emotional and thought I might tear up right before I received communion but my 'rational' side took over and I didn't make a spectacle of myself.

I had the exact same thoughts after my chrismation.

Congrats to you!

In Christ,

PS- Forgive me for not adding my congratulations sooner, somehow I seem to have missed this thread.  :-\
