It is great to return the family to Orthodoxy!  Thank you Choirfriend!  Who helped bump me off the fence I was sitting on between staying Byzantine Catholic and being Orthodox.  My Orthodox great-aunts have been telling me for most of my life I should be Orthodox.  I should have listened to them years ago, but it is never too late!!  I'm glad you all welcomed me Choirfriend!

Congratulations!  May God be with you and your family always!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
