The Hymn of the Intercession of the Saints - from the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil. Coptic Orthodox Tewahdo church
Plan today for your child(ren) (boys and girls) to participate Holy Week as a guard of the tomb or a reader. On Holy Friday (April 18, 2014) the 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. time-frame is for the younger boys and they must be accompanied by an adult (their Father, Uncle, Grandfather, Godfather, etc.). They will each have their Altar Boy robes blessed, put their robes on and stand next to Christ's tomb with a lantern or candle. The time increments are flexible as this age group may be a bit restless. 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. is typically the older Altar Boys (4th grade to college) partnered with their fathers, brothers, cousins, friend, etc. 9:00 p.m. (or whenever Lamentation Vespers have ended) to the Divine Liturgy on Saturday morning (April 19, 2014), anyone is welcomed to sign up. The schedule will be adjusted according to the number of volunteer participants. For younger girls, young adults and women, they will have the opportunity to read Psalms and Scriptures during these same periods of time. Typically, a ...
MP3 Pacific Camerata - Divine Liturgy of the Armenian Apostolic Church: A New Version by George Kirazian,...
A PERSONAL LENTEN ANTHOLOGY Day 11 (Thursday of the 2nd Week): In a remote passage from a liturgical commentary attributed to the 15th century mystagogue, St. Symeon of Thessaloniki, called ON THE SACRED LITURGY, one is struck to read the expression, “God in the midst of gods.” The phrase refers to the completed prothesis rite (the preparatory service preceding the Divine Liturgy and the central theme of my PhD dissertation), but the notion can be extended to refer to the Church, in which God stands in the middle of … gods?! What may appear quite scandalous really should not be. Isn’t there only one God, after all? What is this notion of “other gods”? Yes, there is only one God by nature, the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. However, all of us who share God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:26) have the capability to become gods ... by grace, by God’s benevolent gift. This honor, as Symeon elsewhere explains, is bestowed first to the Mother of God, the angels and saints, and fina ...
Quotes on the Divine Liturgy "Let no one out of laziness or continuous worldly occupations miss these holy Sunday gatherings, which God Himself handed down to us, lest he be justly abandoned by God... If you are detained and do not attend on one occasion, make up for it the next time, bringing yourself to Christ's Church. Otherwise you may remain uncured, suffering from unbelief in your soul because of deeds or words, and failing to approach Christ's surgery to receive... holy healing." St. Gregory Palamas If you only knew how great a blessing comes from the Divine Liturgy, then you would collect even the dust from the floor of the church to wash your faces with it. + St. Gabriel the Confessor
DID YOU KNOW THAT? In the Middle Ages, Ukraine was a key center of East Slavic culture, as epitomized by the powerful state of Kievan Rus'. The Golden Age of Kievan Rus' began with the reign of Vladimir the Great (980–1015), who turned Rus' toward Byzantine Christianity. His emissaries in Constantinople reported, "We no longer knew whether we were in heaven or on earth," describing a majestic Divine Liturgy in Hagia Sophia, "nor such beauty, and we know not how to tell of it." History reports that Vladimir himself was baptized in Korsum, a southern city in Crimea and his people (en masse) in the Dnieper River in Kiev in 988. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, Ukraine was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers. A Cossack republic emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries. Catherine II of Russia officially abolished the autonomy of the Cossack state in 1764. Ukraine became part of the Russian Empire in the Russo-Turkish War (1768–1774), and later became a foundi ...

A big day for our monastery; Br. Andrew went to visit the staff and students at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, where he attended a beautiful Mass on Campus, took a tour, and spent lunchtime with staff members learning how the school works, and visiting with the Dominican students. Ms.Colleen Power, who is the Director of Student Services, and who had visited our monastery two weeks ago, was the most gracious hostess, who introduced him around, and the lovely young cook, Megan, enjoyed the fresh, dried bay leaves from the monastery Brother brought along as a thank- you for the wonderful lunch. He also had a gift basked with him filled with lovely little icons from the designs of our Abbot Damian, and our beautiful homemade candles for staff and students. It was truly a grace-filled day, with the result that the School invited us all to come down to celebrate a Divine Liturgy at the Priory of the Dominican Friars, as the school's chapel is too small to hold all of them. We are ...

The Society of Saint Romanos is pleased to announce a newly commissioned Orthodox composition by Fr. Ivan Moody: "Greek Liturgy." The Society commissioned the work in memory of Archon John Bartholomew. Fr. Ivan was kind enough to accept the commission to compose a Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, based on Greek sources and suited for liturgical use. The St. Romanos Cappella, a Chicago-based professional chamber choir, will premiere the newly composed work within the context of a celebration of the Divine Liturgy at St. Andrew's Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago. This premiere, as well as a recording of the work, will take place in the Society's 2014–2015 Season. A full press release will be forthcoming. Praise be to God for all good things!

May I suggest to my friends in the San Diego area that a good way to support the cause of peace in Ukraine would be to come and pray with us this coming Sunday (Feb. 1) at St. John the Baptizer Ukrainian Catholic Church, 4400 Palm Street, La Mesa, at Divine Liturgy at 9:30 AM. For my Catholic friends, participation in this Divine Liturgy fulfills your Sunday obligation; for my non-Catholic friends, your prayers and presence would be welcome and appreciated, and we have many parish members to whom you can speak who are directly in touch with those in Ukraine who are being affected by the unrest. Please come and join us to pray for peace in Ukraine, and throughout the world.
Today marked the 100th Anniversary of the first Divine Liturgy in Providence at Saint Sahag and Saint Mesrob Armenian Church on 70 Jefferson Street. The memories that are running through my mind are endless. This has been the spiritual home of our family and thousands of others. My prayers, thoughts and love go out to all of those who sacrificed so much to bring an Armenian Church to Providence. It is up to all of us to continue to worship, witness and live a Christian life with our Armenian identity. I am a proud Armenian and will always try and give what little talents I have to make our community better. Whatever I give to our Church pales in comparison to what it gives back to me. To our youth - remember where you came from and give back ten fold - to my fellow parishioners and brothers and sisters of Christ - may we stand united as one to make our Lord's home the best it can be.this home is the place where we will laugh together, cry together, pray together and most importantly, see our families grow ...
Liturgy and Evangelism A thousand years ago Grand Duke Vladimir of Kiev sent envoys to various cultural centers to find the religion best suited to his infant Russian nation. Vladimir’s delegates were duly impressed with Islam and with Rome, but it was Constantinople that won their hearts. Such was the solemn splendor of the Divine Liturgy there that the visiting Russians found themselves wonderi...ng whether they were in heaven or on earth! What if Vladimir’s emissaries had notified the Constantinople authorities in advance of their visit and had found the service for the occasion deliberately designed to appeal to them-perhaps with ancient Cossack break dancing thrown in for effect? They might have liked it, but they could hardly have respected such a performance. In evangelism as in liturgy honesty is the best policy. Evangelistic and liturgical honesty requires that the outward forms really correspond to and inculcate the intended theology. Attempting to disguise Lutheran content with sectarian an ...

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Pastoral School I would like to congratulate the newly ordained Priest Silouan Benedict. Fr. Silouan is a first-year student in our Pastoral School and was ordained by His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, on January 5, 2014 in Australia. Fr. Silouan (immediately to the Metropolitan's right in the group picture) will serve the newly-established community in Bangalore, India. We ask the prayers of our faculty and staff for Fr.

On this day in 1907, a group of 239 coal miners, men and boys, died during a coal mine explosion at the Darr Mine near Jacobs Creek, Pennsylvania. Only two escaped. This was Pennsylvania's worst mining disaster and one of the worst in the United States. That day, Carpatho-Russian miners gave up a day's wage to attend a morning Divine Liturgy, as December 19 is the feast day of St. Nicholas, their patron saint. During the service they heard a terrible rumbling and the ground shook as gas and dust exploded in the mine. Recognizing disaster, everyone rushed to help rescue any survivors. However, only two men working near the mine entrance were still alive. The poisonous gas, called afterdamp, killed many who survived the explosion itself. Most of the victims were Hungarian and Italian immigrants; seventy-one Hungarians are buried in a mass grave in Olive Cemetery. Many newspapers, including the New York Times, reported the miraculous events. One Pittsburgh paper stated: Religious fervor is due to sweep throu ...

Consecration of St. Peter Syriac Church - San Dimas/Glendora Area Sunday, November 10th was a memorable day for the Syriac Orthodox community in Los Angeles as His Eminence Archbishop Mor Clemis Eugene Kaplan, His Grace Bishop Serapion, His Eminence Archbishop Mor Titus Yeldo, very Reverend and Reverend Fathers, and several clergy had gathered together to consecrate St Peter Syriac Orthodox Church in the San Dimas/Glendora area. In the year 2010 the community expressed a dire need for a church in the area, and with the blessings of Archbishop Mor C. Eugene Kaplan, the community pulled together and began renting St. John Coptic Church for the weekly Divine Liturgy. During the first year, an opportunity arose to buy an existing church building, and with great love and support the community bought the property which is at 1404 West Gladstone Street, San Dimas CA. Over a period of a year and a half the community restructured the building to make into a proper Syriac church, and on Palm Sunday of 2013 His Emin ...

Eucharist - Holy Communion This is the Mystery where the bread and wine are changed by the Holy Spirit into the true Blood and Body of our Lord Jesus Christ. This gift is distributed to all Orthodox Christians who choose to partake for the most intimate union with our Lord. This is seen as the greatest of all the Mysteries. It is the climax of our main worship service the Divine Liturgy. This was promised by the Christ on the occasion of the feeding of the five thousand. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world. (John 6:51) Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and ...
St. Nektarios of Aegina The divine Nektarios of Aegina, is one of the most widely known of Greek Orthodox Saints. He was born on October 1st, 1846 in Silyvria, in Asia Minor (now occupied by Turkey). At Holy Baptism he was given the name Anastasios. His parents were simple pious Christians. They brought him up in a manner pleasing to God, and did what their very limited means allowed for his formal education. Having completed elementary school in his hometown, he left for the great city of Constantinople at the age of 14. There, he found employment as a shop assistant and was able to earn a meager living. As well as regularly attending the Divine Liturgy, he also read the Holy Scriptures and Writings of the Orthodox Elders of the Church on a daily basis. In 1866, at the age of 20, Anastasios went to the island of Chios, where he was appointed a teacher. After 7 years, he entered into the local monastery, under the care of the venerable elder Pachomios. After 3 years as a novice Athanasios was tonsured a M ...
1385 To respond to this invitation we must prepare ourselves for so great and so holy a moment. St. Paul urges us to examine our conscience: "Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself."218 Anyone conscious of a grave sin must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before coming to communion. 1386 Before so great a sacrament, the faithful can only echo humbly and with ardent faith the words of the Centurion: "Domine, non sum dignus ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanabitur anima mea" ("Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul will be healed.").219 And in the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom the faithful pray in the same spirit: O Son of God, bring me into com ...

For the feast of Pentecost the icon of the Holy Trinity, the three angelic figures who appeared to Abraham, is placed in the center of the church for veneration. This icon is used with the traditional Pentecost icon. The church building is decorated with flowers and the green leaves of the summer to show that God's divine breath comes to renew all creation. Green vestments and coverings are also used. In many parishes the feast is celebrated starting the evening before with Great Vespers. Some parishes also serve Matins on the morning of the feast before the Divine Liturgy. The Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom with special hymns replacing the standard Antiphons.

This morning Sarah and I visited the local Greek Orthodox Church. This prompted three thoughts: 1. Though more prayer and thought will be needed, the experience pretty well inspired me to recommit to the Anglican tradition. St. Nick's reminded me not only of what I am not, but what I am. The experience confirmed yet again that I'm no longer a low church evangelical. I love the historicity, beauty, and sense of transcendence prompted by the Divine Liturgy. It resonates with something deep in my soul. I would go so far as to say it met a spiritual need. Yet, and I say this with nothin' but love, I have zero desire to be Orthodox. It just ain't home. 2. I'm not down with the tradition's view toward gender roles. Aside from the fact that the tradition doesn't even honor its own heritage by ordaining female deacons, I was profoundly uncomfortable with the patriarchal assertion the priest made in reference to Father's Day. It's not subversive to a husband for a wife to make more money. The priest is a good man ...
Today, I want to continue in reflecting further the relevance of the liturgy in the spiritual life of God’s lovers. I mentioned in my reflection last week that the Anglican understanding of the liturgy is incarnational. Today, I venture to say that this Anglican understanding of an incarnational liturgy is truly scriptural. God in Christ meets us in our own humanity and in our lowly human experiences through the liturgy. This means that the liturgy—with all its acts, gestures, postures, words, silence, sacral objects and prayers—points beyond itself to the very reality of Christ’s Incarnational Presence with us who are are His lovers, manifested when we gather together as His Church to meet Him in His Transcendental Presence in and among us. This is the significance of Christ’s words: “For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them (St. Matthew 18:20)”. When believers gather together to celebrate the Divine Liturgy, this liturgy ushers them into the ...

With the blessing of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Lipa Ramon C. Arguelles, DD, SThL, the first ever Divine Liturgy of of Saint John Chrysostom was celebrated in the Archdiocese of Lipa in the Parish of San Isidro Labrador, Cuenca, Batangas last May, 22, 2013 7:00 PM. It was offered by the hands of the Right Reverend Olexander Kenez, Vicar General of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Eparchy of Australia, New Zealand and Oceania concelebrated by Rev. Fr. Remigio Mendoza, a priest of the Archdioces of Lipa.
There was once a priest who did not want to serve the liturgy because it was a cold winter day. The temperature was 10 degrees below zero and the priest knew that the only person who was likely to come to the service was the chanter. The priest had no idea about the Church’s teaching on the presence of the Triumphant Church and how the Divine Liturgy benefits the living and the departed. With difficulty he forced himself to go to church. On the way to church he kept wishing that the chanter would not come so that he would not have to serve and go home. However, the chanter did come. The priest did the Prothesis (or Proskomedia, the service of preparing the holy gifts) in a hurry and began the Divine Liturgy. Shortly after, some bishops, priests, monks and nuns and some lay people arrived. Most of them sat in the choir section and began to chant so beautifully that the priest forgot about how cold and lonely he was earlier. His whole body was warm and his whole being was all a flame…. When he did the s ...
Entry 3 On the day I was ordained to the priesthood, the church ( st George, Rosebay) was packed. The Archbishop was there, priests were there, a deacon was there, family, friends and parishioners had filled the church. I had never felt such a presence before - except perhaps for Easter. On the next day when I was scheduled to serve my first Divine Liturgy which is the highest work a priest could do, I looked back through the royal doors to see who had come to share my joy at my first liturgy . The chanter and only one old lady - and she was there only to clean the church ! Then Fr, sensing my disappointment, whispered into my ear something I will never forget for the rest of my life. "Do not be afraid Fr, the church may be desolate of people, but it has filled with the Angels and Saints!"

Interesting article... Personal Integrity and the Closed Chalice by Fr. Steven C. Salaris, M.Div., Ph.D. Presbyter All Saints of North America Orthodox Christian Church St. Louis, MO One of the most difficult and sensitive areas that our clergy must deal with when non-Orthodox attend the Divine Liturgy is the "closed chalice." This refers to the teaching and practice of the Orthodox Church worldwide that only Orthodox Christians may partake of the Eucharist (or any sacrament for that matter) at our worship services. It is a simple concept, but one that seems to cause a lot of strife. There are two basic reasons for this: 1) Visitors from Protestant denominations are often used to open chalices where anyone is allowed to come to Communion. This author has observed a Protestant chapel service where the pastor stated that Jesus gave his Body and Blood not to a denomination, but to his disciples. Thus, anyone who felt called to the chalice was welcomed. You could be a Mormon, Catholic, Protestant, etc. and st ...

Christ is Risen! Hristos Voskrese! All Orthodox Christian churches follow the same Divine Liturgy. There may be language and cultural traditions that differ from Russian to Greek to Serbian and so on but the primary worship service or Divine Liturgy is identical. If the young woman is accustomed to hearing the Liturgy in Old Slavonic or Russian, she might want to find a Russian or Ukrainian Orthodox Church. St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church in Steelton, PA offers a combination of English, Old Slavonic and Serbian as the languages of the Liturgy. We welcome all Orthodox Christian worshippers and their friends to St. Nicholas Church and we have a number of worshippers who are not Serbian.

 In the early centuries of Christianity, the Church designated the night of Holy Saturdayinto Easter Sunday for the baptism of the Catechumens. Catechumens were a classof pagans and Jews who were taught the Christian faith in preparation for theirbaptism on the Holy Saturday. Then, Baptism was not a personal or family event, as it is today, rather baptism wascommunal celebration of the whole Church. For this reason Catechumens werebaptized in groups, dressed in a white robe and received into the divineliturgy of Saturday night service (Pascha Divine Liturgy) while the choir wassinging “As many as have been baptized unto Christ, have put on Christ.” Accordinglythe newly baptized and illumined Christians will join the rest of the faithfuland continue the celebration the Divine Liturgy and Pascha. Inthe process, the tradition was that the Catechumens would wear a white robe forthe following 7 days of Pascha (Easter). A white robe to symbolize illuminedand white soul that is cleansed through the sacramen ...

Amplifying Henri Nouwen’s Insight of Christian Identity:  Chosen, Blessed, Broken, Given   by DEWnada 3/13   Mark 14:22-24  King James Version (KJV)   22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. 23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. 24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many. (See also Matthew 26:26-28 & Luke 22:26-28)   Henri Nouwen brilliantly looks at the heart of the Christian Mystery to discern the true Christian identity. The Institution narrative of the Divine Liturgy, he states, reveals the Eucharistic bread (which is the Body of Christ, which is the Church) is taken or chosen by Christ, blessed by him, broken by him, and given by him. The Word of God becomes the bread of life which is the chosen, blessed, broken and given Body of Christ. Therefore we Christians, who compose the Body of Christ, must, l ...

The protos with the Cross remains on the amvon.   The Protodeacon begins thus:   Who is so great a God as our God? Thou art the God who doeth wonders!   He repeateth the same three (3) times, in a progressively louder voice. Then he readeth the following –   Celebrating today the Triumph of orthodoxy, O ye people, let us glorify above all our good God, who is blessed forever. This, our God, having taken thought for and established His beloved inheritance, the Holy Church, and having comforted with His true word our forebears who fell away through our transgression, hath set our foundation in paradise. This, our God, directing man toward His promise of salvat ...
A good vocabulary word for the day: "HOMILY" = A commentary that follows a reading of scripture. Many people consider it synonymous with the word sermon. It's not a Q&A session. In Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and Eastern Orthodox Churches, a homily is usually given during Mass (Divine Liturgy for Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches, and Divine Service for the Lutheran Church) at the end of the Liturgy of the Word. The word homily is derived from the Greek word homilia (from homilein), which means to have communion or hold verbal intercourse with a person. In this sense homilia is used in 1 Corinthians 15:33. In Luke 24:14, we find the word homiloun, and in Acts 24:26, homilei, both used in the sense of "speaking with". Origen was the first to distinguish between logos (sermo) and homilia (tractatus). Since Origen's time homily has meant, and still means, a commentary, without formal introduction, division, or conclusion, on some part of Sacred Scripture, the aim being to explain the literal, and e .. ...

The evolution of Saint Nicholas into the more commercially lucrative Santa Claus—which took centuries in Europe and America—has recently been re-enacted in the saint's home town of Demre, Turkey. The modern city is built near the ruins of ancient Myra, and attracts many Russian tourists as St. Nicholas is a very popular Orthodox saint. Restoration on Saint Nicholas' original church is currently underway, with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in 2007 permitting Divine Liturgy to be celebrated at the site, and contributing 40,000 Turkish Lira to the project.[citation needed] A solemn bronze statue of the saint by Russian sculptor Gregory Pototsky was donated by the Russian government in 2000, and was given a prominent place in the square fronting the medieval Church of St. Nicholas. In 2005, mayor Süleyman Topçu had the statue replaced by a red-suited plastic Santa Claus statue, because he wanted an image more recognisable to foreign visitors. Protests from the Russian government against this were ...

From Catholic To Orthodox By Thom Nickels The word ‘orthodoxy’ can conjure up foul associations. There’s Bertrand Russell’s famous quote, “Orthodoxy is the grave of intelligence,”which covers any sort of rigid or right thinking at the expense of creative thought. Orthodoxy (lower case) implies a strict adherence to tradition against which Modernism doesn’t stand a chance. In Judaism, Orthodoxy is seen as that religion’s supreme, most traditional expression, its un-reformed essence. In Christianity, Orthodoxy which has never had a Second Vatican Council or anything approaching a Novus Ordo – Divine Liturgy with lay ministers and Protestant-style hymns – is a window into the ancient Church. In fact, you could search the world for a modern young Orthodox priest with a guitar and a penchant for humming “On Eagles Wings,” but chances are you wouldn’t find one. Priests like that never get a chance to bloom in Orthodoxy; or, if one was discovered in seminary, he’d be sent packing or b ...

THIS IS WHY I AM CATHOLIC! Where did liturgical worship and especially the Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox Church or the Mass of the Roman Church come from? What were its origins? How much change has there been over time from the beginnings of Christian worship in the first century Jerusalem Church? One should begin by answering the most basic question: what is liturgy? The best translation is "the work of the people." That is the collective work which assembled believers do together in offering praise and worship to God. The Old Testament Basis for Christian Worship Jews at the time of Jesus Christ had already had a history of worship almost 1500 years long. Their history was full of interaction with God Who called them to be His people, and Who had revealed to them specific instructions as to the offerings and sacrifices which were part of the way in which He was to be worshiped. The Bible is clear that God revealed to Israel how to worship, and it was patterned after things in heaven. [1] These specific ...

Protect him/(Fr. Alex) who blesseth and sanctify us for many years, O Lord. What a joy to serve with Fr. Alex. 53 years in the priesthood.. Lately, I have been taking the opportunity to learn from the old masters of theology and old school. Forgive me, it will be hard to find them these days and you will be lucky if you find one that is true to his priesthood. Stop complaining that the church service is too early and therefore you make your own excuse by not coming to the Divine Liturgy. Why do we expect our clergy to stand for hours on Sundays without any rest? Father Alex added this litany: "and for those who did not attend for a reasonable cause" even he prays for you while you are absent for the Divine Services. I say this with love to all of you...is to see the beauty of our services when we pray from the depths of our hearts and becoming true Orthodox Christians. Just to make it clear...we will not make our services short and will keep following the Received Tradition of our Holy Orthodox Christian ...
Happy Orthodox Christmas! The feast of St Nicholas of Myra is December 6th. The tradition of Saint Nicholas Day, usually on 6 December, is a festival for children in many countries in Europe related to surviving legends of the saint, and particularly his reputation as a bringer of gifts. The American Santa Claus, as well as the Anglo-Canadian and British Father Christmas, derive from these legends. "Santa Claus" is itself derived from the Dutch Sinterklaas. Celebration in West Bank - Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of the town of Beit Jala. This little town, which is located only two kilometers to the west of Bethlehem, boasts of being the place where St. Nicholas spent four years of his life during his pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Every year on the 19th of December according to the Julian Calendar-that is the 6th of December according to the Gregorian Calendar-a solemn Divine Liturgy is held in the Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas, and is usually followed by parades, exhibitions, and many activities. A ...

On December 1st Fr. Christopher Fadok, OP, Parochial Vicar of Blessed Sacrament Church in Seattle, a Ukrainian Catholic with faculties in both Western and Eastern liturgical rites, led the community gathered at the Prince of Peace Chapel Newman Center in Seattle, WA in the Byzantine “Akathist Hymn to the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary". Thank you to Br Gregory (Jack) Liu for sharing this article with us. Fr. Christopher often served as deacon with us while he completed his studies at DSPT. He celebrated his first Divine Liturgy for us at Our Lady of Fatima. May the Mother of God bring him back to celebrate with us again one day!
My cousin, Themio Harmantzis, posted this about an hour ago via Mobile. It's written by a Greek Orthodox Priest in LA. Please see past the religion and read ... I believe what he has to say is worth it. Thank you Fr. Garry for posting this. "In the Orthodox Church, the first thing we pray for in the Divine Liturgy is “Peace.” In fact we pray for it three times —first, that we gather in peace to pray to the Lord; second, that the peace from Above point us to salvation for our souls; and third, for peace in the whole world. While I’m not a liturgical scholar or academician, I can only imagine that the writers of the Divine Liturgy must have felt “what is the point of prayer if it is not done in peace?” Or how can one experience God if he does not know peace? In this season of Christmas, we will hear the word “peace” a lot—“Peace on the earth, good will to men,” “Glory be to God on high, peace on earth the angels cry,” etc. And now, only a few days away from this joyful feast, our p ...

Holy Stylianos, thou wast a tower of abstinence and an unshaken pillar of the Church. Dedicated to God from thy youth, thou didst become a dwelling-place of the Spirit. O righteous Father, intercede with Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.[1]

My Great Aunt Sadie Anton. She read a speech on her 100th birthday telling everyone about how James and I came all the way from Texas to help her celebrate and mentioned other things as well. She passed away on Friday and we wanted to come see her on her birthday this coming February 28th.

The Thanksgiving Prayer was the opening prayer for the original Divine Liturgy of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Mark. It was prayed by the priest secretly at the start of the Liturgy. The original text reads "We give Thee thanks, yea, more than thanks, O Lord our God, the Father of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ, for all Thy goodness at all times and in all places, because Thou hast shielded, rescued, helped, and guided us all the days of our lives, and brought us unto this hour, permitting us gain to stand before Thee in Thy holy place, that we may implore forgiveness of our sins and propitiation to all Thy people. We pray and beseech Thee, merciful God, to grant in Thy goodness that we may spend this holy day4 and all the time of our lives without sin, in fullness of joy, health, safety, holiness, and reverence of Thee. But all envy, all fear, all temptation, all the influence of Satan, all the snares of wicked men, do Thou, O Lord, drive away from us, and from Thy Holy Catholic and Apostoli ...
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Let us not forget the meaning of this holiday nor let it be distorted by the liberal rewrite of history. Give thanks today for the blessings you have and the people in your lives. I am so thankful for the little I have and the people who love me. I will remember all of you today during my celebration of the Divine Liturgy this morning.

Is More Than A Once-a-Year Affair By Bishop KALLISTOS (Ware) What is the distinctive and unique function of the Church? What is it that the Church alone does and can do? What is it that distinguishes the parish church from everything else -- from a mere group of people, a society, a club, an ethnic organization? Surely, the only answer to this question is that that which distinguishes the Church from all else is the Eucharist, the Divine Liturgy,.
For you my son Michael your names day is coming up on the 21st.
This beautiful prayer, drawn from the Byzantine Divine Liturgy, reminds us that Christ's victory over death brings us all the possibility of eternal rest. We pray for all of those who have gone before us, that they, too, may enter into Heaven. Prayer for All the Deceased By Your resurrection from the dead, O Christ, death no longer has dominion over those who die in holiness. So, we beseech You, give rest to Your servants in Thy sanctuary and in Abraham's bosom. Grant it to those, who from Adam until now have adored You with purity, to our fathers and brothers, to our kinsmen and friends, to all men who have lived by faith and passed on their road to You, by a thousand ways, and in all conditions, and make them worthy of the heavenly kingdom. This we pray... an to God

When we attend a Roman Rite Mass instead of Divine Liturgy on Sundays - 4 things I miss - 1. Liturgy Sung vs music at Liturgy (or music with Liturgy) 2. Reverence 3. Children receiving our Lord and 4. The blessing one can receive when they are unable to go to Communion (Benediction in the Latin Rite).
