This was one of those few days when we had fairly normal weather, while areas closer to Vancouver even had some snow. Thomas drove me to visit Vladika Lazar at the hospital and we found him in good spirits, having been told that his healing was coming along well. The new procedure was not only doing its job, but also giving him a brighter outlook on his situation. We laughed as we looked at the wild geese sitting on the edge of the roof, honking loudly and looking somewhat ridiculous and this natural entertainment could be seen from Vladika’s bed. We baptized a two month old baby boy with the name of Kion, a name that I could not recall but, indeed, there is an ancient martyr Kion from the early fourth century with that name.
