I was wondering were "Cleveland was". I suppose it is not to much of a stretch to say then that "I have entertained an angel (i.e. 'a messenger') unawares".  :) Congratulations friend, may the grace of our Lord keep you and make you effective in His cause, and servant of all.

Or I'm too forgetful.  I've attached 3 photos from my Deaconal ordination (location: Annunciation GO Church, Akron, OH).  For some reason, I don't have any from my ordination to the priesthood on my computer - I'll get some from someone else.

#2 - The laying on of hands.
#3 - My addressing the Bishop (this one comes chronologically before #2)
#5 - The clergy, my wife and daughter with His Eminence.  The count that day: 1 hierarch, 13 priests (maybe 14 - I forget), 3 deacons, plus me.

Ok, so I found the ordination photo mother lode.  Now I just need to get permission of the photographer to share them.

Thanks for the pictures.  Congratulations on the first anniversary of your ordination as a priest!  May God grant you and Presbytera many years in your ministry together.

This is excellent Father. What a moment it must have been when you were given the lamb.
