St. Mary and St. Moses Abbey has been completed and His Holiness Baba Abba Shenouda III is coming to Corpus Christi to preside over the opening ceremonies.  This is so exciting.  I am going to try to go and see him.

Oy -- a bit too far for me to drive, though I would dearly like to see him again. I saw him the last time he was in Texas, at the consecration of St. Mary and Archangel Michael here in Houston.

IC XC NIKA
He came to my church about 2 years ago.  He dipped out before I could kiss his hand (and I STILL HAVEN'T FORGIVEN HIM WUHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA; actually, I did).
in Christ,
shawn
p.s.  Setfree, he's actually very funny.  He's this short little fellow, with this really deep voice; and a really high pitched laugh (his laugh made me laugh more than his jokes; since I had to wait for the translation).

I am going to drag my brother to go see him.  Corpus Christi is about two hours away.  His Grace Anba Youssef (my diocesan bishop) will also be there.  I would love the chance to talk to His Grace in person, even for a second.  He has, through e-mail, been such a help to me.

I'm glad to hear that H.H. Pope Shenouda is well enough to travel.  I had heard he was quite ill.  Has anyone heard an update?

Prayers please.
