    Hi, all!

    Monday, October 20th, my wife, Hermione, will be having a c-section to deliver our 4th child, a baby girl. Please, keep her and the baby in your prayers.

    We have decided to name her Alexandra Calliope. Her patron will be Saint Alexandra the Empress and Martyr.

    [​IMG]


    “The holy, glorious and right-believing Martyr Alexandra the Empress was married to Emperor Diocletian in the late third and early fourth centuries. She is honored with feast days on April 21 and April 23 (the latter being St. George's day).

    She was so impressed with the courage of St. George during his martyrdom in the early fourth century that she became a Christian herself. As a consequence, she came under the same persecution that had resulted in St. George's death. Under the rule of Emperor Licinius, she was condemned and sentenced to beheading. According to one account, when she arrived at the place of her execution, she asked to be allowed to sit down. After her request was granted, she sat down and died quietly before the executioners could complete their task.”

    Thanks.

    Vanshan,

    did you attend the consecration services? Did you by chance meet my priest, Father Seraphim?

    The chapel is so beautiful! Glory to God!

    Hi, Mary!

    I saw Fr. Seraphim, but didn't have an opportunity to meet him. I hope he enjoyed his visit. It was a wonderful weekend with all the visiting clergy, monastics, and faithful in the area. If anyone wants to see pictures here's our parish's website. It was recently designed and I think there's still more work to do, but it has a link to consecration photos, plus construction photos of our chapel in the Tulsa area.

    I'm hoping to make it to the ordination of bishop-elect Jonah, but being just two weeks after the baby arrives, I probably will not get to be there. He seems like a wonderful person, and I'm sure will support and continue the wonderful work of Archbishop Dmitri very well.

    Basil

    Thanks be to God! The c-section delivery went fine this past Monday. Baby Alexandra weighed 7 lbs., 6 ozs. and was 18 inches long. Thanks for your prayers.
