From a Friend of Consciousness

My Dearest Fr. Dorin,

I pray you are doing well. Again I apologize for my absence to you. I have been going through so many struggles and spiritual struggles. I truly am beat up quit a bit. I had started reading your work and then became side tracked and a bit lost.

I am rereading your great work again. I think it is truly wonderful. In my old age I confess I am a slow reader. I am honestly very humbled and honored you dedicated this work to me, a nobody.

I am also astonished about the subject of this work. St. Symeon the New Theologian means much to me. My Spiritual Father, Priestmonk George Maloney ~ Memory Eternal! ~ wrote and preached about this beautiful saint.

I was Christmated with my family in 2004, the parish priest, Fr. Anthony Sola, who also loved this saint gifted me with his icon. I am always amazed at such connections from God. I love you Father, and I treasure our friendship, thanking God always for it.

Pray for me, I suffer much with much on my mind. I search for employment too, I pray God gives me work within the Church realm, for my salvation. I pray you will write other works in English. We need the blessings of your countries blessed spirituality.

Have you thought about a work exploring the deep meaning and spirituality displayed in the life of St. Paraschiva? The wonderful and strange symbolism displayed in her life and after her death through history. Her life is so different then most of God’s saints in many ways.

I pray you might. God Love and Bless you Father and your family. I will write more as I journey into your book. I send you my love and my friendship. As you ask St. Paraschiva to bless me, also ask Blessed Fr. Arsenie Boca to help me, thank you.

Your sinful child,



My Dear Berney,

I understand peoplewho have much common sense, much consciousness. And you’re a rare man…because you have a delicate, sensitive, loving consciousness.

Therefore, my first book that I have translated and edited in english, I dedicated it to you.

They are not many informations about Saint Paraskevabut there are many wonders of her to narrate. I did not write any book about Saint Paraskeva…but I have many others to translate into english. 

You are in my prayers, along with your numerous family, and your friendship fills me with joy.

Have only joy!
