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
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."
