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.
