"He who receives Communion is made holy and Divinized in soul and body in the same way that water, set over a fire, becomes boiling... Communion works like yeast that has been mixed into dough so that it leavens the whole lump; ...Just as by melting two candles together you get one piece of wax, so, I think, one who receives the Flesh and Blood of Jesus is fused together with Him by this Communion, and the soul finds that he is in Christ and Christ is in him."
St. Cyril of Alexandria [041]

The Baptism took place on Sunday, 29th December 2013 of Boris

We have now received from Boris's grandmother, Katya Todorova, the following words and pictures:

The Baptism and Chrismation of Boris Pavlov took place on Sunday 29th December 2013.

 He was brought to Church to be baptised, on the forty-seventh day of his birth, by his parents - Zlatina and Pavel Pavlov, his godparents Nedialka and George Trendafilov, and many  friends.
 A bilingual text of THE SERVICE OF HOLY BAPTISM AND CHRISMATION in Church Slavonic and English, was complied, to enable his godparents to follow and understand the text.

All the people who attended the service were very excited and impressed.
