For My Tonsuring
« on: November 27, 2005, 06:16:55 PM »
On December 4th (a week from today) I will be tonsured a reader by His Eminence, Archbishop +DMITRI at St. Barbara's Orthodox Church in Ft. Worth.  I'll "take" the name David--I say "take" because David is actually my given first name from birth--but will still be on here as Pedro.

Your prayers would be appreciated.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
