Journey to Orthodoxy
He is now called Theophane. After having assisted with the Orthodox Catechism in Bunia, East Congo, he had given us all a great surprise by abandoning all magical practices, that tied him to the devil and therefore also far from God and His Grace, who gives the true happiness of mankind.
A certain day, prior to his baptism, he came after Vespers (evening prayers), bringing in his bag several different magical objects that he had in his possession: incantations, magical prayers, handkerchiefs, powders in bottles and an ointment which had been given to him by a certain warlock of his region, with which he could impose his will onto other to dominate them etc… But this young man could not find any work, and he did not taste of any joy, interior peace or happiness.
Having not found a special service in the Echologion (Missil), the priest did the sercice of the Paraclesis to the Virgin Mary, with some of the people who were still the court of the St Nicholas Church, in Bunia. During this supplication to the Saint Virgin Mary, we have lit a fire in the court next to our holy temple, and the priest told the repentant to throw into the fire all his magical objects, whilst renouncing Satan.
The next day, the repentant received the Holy Orthodox Baptism and chose the name Theophane himself.
Afterwards, after receiving Communion of the Holy Sacrament, only two days after, God had blessed him and he had found good work in one of the NGO(non-governmental organisations), where he continues to work praising God.
The same events was reproduced with another youth, who also renounced all satanic works, by burning his magical objects in a fire, in front of a group of faithful Orthodox assembled in from of a priest, and for thereof following Christ.
That Christ illumines with the light of His knowledge the whole world!
