Studying abroad
« on: September 13, 2017, 12:26:04 PM »
In a few days I will be moving to Krakow to live and study for an entire year. I would appreciate some prayers for my everyday and academic life, but especially for my spiritual life (which right now is somewhat dead, to be honest) and progress towards the Orthodox Church. Lord have mercy on me, a sinner.

Lord  have mercy.

Through the intercessions of St. Catherine, may the Lord bring you peace and success.

Lord, have mercy.
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

 :) Lucky you.  Krakow is such a beautiful city with so many cultural activities.  Be sure to go to the Orthodox Church.
May God bless you and protect you.

Thank you all for your prayers. Tomorrow I will go to the Divine Liturgy. Any advice on what (not) to do would be appreciated.

Feel free to start a new thread in Covert Issues asking this question--discussion is limited here.  :)

How is your life in Krakow going? Are you enjoying your studies and the cultural life?

 Have you visited the Orthodox parish yet?
