It's Happening!
« on: Today at 12:34:07 AM »
On August 21 I will be baptized and chrismated into the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.  Long ago I chose my name saint (St. Nikitas the Goth).  Primarily due to my long military service and my enthusiasm about sharing Orthodoxy if asked.  I want to do it right and am purchasing a baptismal robe.  I am so darn excited about this!  My priest has informed me of what will be taking place and I have kept my sponsor in the loop.  Wow! It's going to happen.  Just wanted to share.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Glory be to God, may you follow the true faith without error, or heresies.

Glory be to God.  The Bulgarian Church has fantastic music, so I think you picked a nice jurisdiction also.
