弗拉基米爾‧何的聖浸聖事
Baptism of the warrior Vladimir in the Xindian River

台北舉揚十字架堂的慕道友何弟兄,在新北市新店區的新店溪接受了聖浸聖事。
這是聖教會第一次在台北市區的河流舉行聖浸聖事。
根據由使徒傳下來的神聖教規,聖浸聖事應在流動的天然水域裡進行,而正教會在台灣遵守此神聖規章。
一年多以來,何弟兄特地從他在台灣南部服兵役之處,利用休假多次前來台北上正教慕道班,為加入正教會做準備,為能成為一個正信的基督徒,以領受上帝的慈恩並開始新的生命。

弗拉基米爾的兄弟和家人都還屬於民間信仰,這也是他為什麼選擇聖王弗拉基米爾的名字為聖名的原因。
聖王弗拉基米爾使本來不屬於基督信仰,信仰多神教、崇拜偶像的俄羅斯人民成為基督徒。
而正教會也希望越來越多台灣人可以認識主耶穌,在基督内獲得真實的生命和自由。
讓我們祈求上帝在各方面幫助基督的新戰士弗拉基米爾,也求主讓所有台灣人尋求並得到真理,並能與耶穌結合。
因為耶穌基督曾說道:「你們要認識真理,真理會使你自由!」(約安福音8:32)

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism was received by Vladimir – a Catechumen of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Parish in Taipei. This is the first time the Sacrament was performed in the Xindian River in the natural water body within the City of Taipei. According to the Rule of the Apostles, Baptism has to be performed in a natural flowing water (“living water”).

For more than a year Vladimir, the young soldier of the Taiwan Armed Forces, was preparing for this great Sacrament and for the entrance to the Holy Orthodox Church. Serving in the South of Taiwan, he regularly made regular trips to Taipei to attend the Catechism classes. All the relatives of Vladimir are still pagans, and this is one of the reasons why the newly elected child of Christ wished to be baptized in honor of Saint Prince Vladimir, the Baptist of Russia, who led the pagan Russian people of his time to the Orthodox Faith.

Let us pray to God for His help to the new warrior of Christ and for the conversion of all people in Taiwan to the Truth and Life. For Christ has said: “Learn the Truth and the Truth will make you free!” (John 8:32).
