Diaconate Ordination
« on: January 30, 2006, 02:11:29 PM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Well, the ordination on Saturday, was beautiful.  I was nervious, but a whole calm came over me at the moment of ordination.  The next day, Sunday, His Eminence, Archbishop Antony, celebrated the Divine Liturgy, tho it was not hierarchical.  His Eminece was a real blessing as he gently told me what to do and corrected my mistakes.  The Sunday school children gave me a book which they wrote of their favorite recollections of me and also their prayers for this unworthy monk.  When His Eminence read them, he said this was proof that he made the right decision to ordain me.  I will enjoy continuing my work with the children.

Thanks, for your kind words. That's odd, tho a woman, at work, at even open the link.  My friend, Marge, just sent me her link to the photos she took, they are nice and clear:
