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 ...
Met on 6/1 from 3:25pm to 5:15pm; thirty-three (33) men attended; Fr Paul celebrated the The Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom with The Service of Prothesis (Proskomedia); Presbyteria Nikki led the chanting. In lieu of a homily, Fr Paul made this a teaching liturgy explaining nuances related to meaning behind the symbolic actions. For many of the men, this was their first experience with the Divine Liturgy.
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!"

Later the Metropolitan visited the goat barn and blessed the newly born goat kids and their mothers before departing to the ringing of the monastery bells.
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.

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 ...
On Great and Holy Saturday the Orthodox Church commemorates the burial of Christ and His descent into Hades. It is the day between the Crucifixion of our Lord and His glorious Resurrection. The Matins of Holy Saturday is conducted on Friday evening, and while many elements of the service represent mourning at the death and burial of Christ, the service itself is one of watchful expectation. icon of the entombment (Great and Holy Saturday Matins) Edit Great and Holy Saturday: Vespers and Divine Liturgy of our holy father Basil the Great (Apr. 3, 2010) by James Michael Thompson on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at 1:57pm The Liturgy held on Holy and Great Saturday is that of Saint Basil the Great.

Muslims Threaten Orthodox Christians in Tripoli, Libya Metropolitan Theophylaktos of Tripoli, Libya has been threatened by fanatical Muslims not to return to the historic Greek Orthodox Church of Saint George in Tripoli, otherwise he would be beheaded and the Christians would be burnt alive. "If we find you again in here, we will burn you all alive, and you, priest, we will take your head," was the ultimatum placed by these fanatical Muslims who invaded the church. "Things are very difficult for Orthodox Christians in Tripoli. With pain in my soul I am thinking of closing the historic church and to open it again on Pascha," said the Metropolitan in an exclusive phone interview with Ierovima.gr. He went on to say: "Last time there was not even one Christian in the church, because they are scared. You know why? About a month ago, a group of about ten Salafist Muslims, who are ultra-conservative Sunni, stormed into the Church of Saint George during the time of the Divine Liturgy and yelled that we needed to ...
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 ...
It's coming, After the Sunday March 17th, The Sunday after that is "The Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy" which brings to mind this service...-David The Anathemas of the Sunday of Orthodoxy At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, after the dismissal, the clergy and servers come forth to the base of the solia, bearing ikons. 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 .. ...
Worship Method The Church since inception has used the Divine Liturgy (Mass) as the main method. But, amazingly the modern churches abolished its use. Here’re some references to show how worship was done in the early church: First: St. Paul, “For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup ...

From the center of Prosforoy comes out the Lamb, IE. the central square of the project with the letters: LF CURRENCY NI KA (Jesus Christ defeats). These letters must be distinctly and clearly displayed. Said Lamb (Lamb), because the Prophet Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah as a akako lamb will be driven to sacrifice.

PARISH LIFE: JANUARY - FEBRUARY 2013 On January Saturday 19 January, the Great Feast of Theophany, the commemoration of the Baptism of the Lord, Father James served Divine Liturgy in Wallsend. A number of Gosford parishioners were there that morning and on the preceding evening. On the following day, Divine Liturgy was served at Gosford. In the absence of our regular reader Paul Douriaguine, Subdeacon Jason Kaplanez read the Apostol. Subdeacon Jason, from Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral in Strathfield, was visiting the Central Coast with his family. The Great Blessing of Water was served at the end of Divine Liturgy. That afternoon Father James blessed homes in Narara Valley, on the Woy Woy peninsula, and around the shores of Brisbane Water. The following day he visited homes elsewhere on the Central Coast, and on Tuesday he visited homes in the Hornsby area and in Sydney’s north. Anyone who missed out on having their home blessed can still make arrangements with Father James for this to ...
Holy Trinity & THE YEAR OF THE SNAKE Good afternoon, everyone. Today is Transfiguration Sunday in the Christian calendar, and since it is the first full moon after the winter solstice, it is also the beginning of the New Year on the Chinese Calendar, bringing us back around to another Year of the Snake. The Transfiguration is a major feast honoring the Persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who comprise the Holy Trinity established by the Nicene Creed. The faithful believe that Jesus was literally transfigured and became radiant atop Mount Tabor (in modern Israel), attested to in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In the Orthodox Church, grapes are traditionally brought to church to be blessed after the Divine Liturgy on the day of the Transfiguration. If grapes are not available in the area, apples or some other fruit may be brought. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church holds a ceremony called Buhe on the Feast of the Transfiguration. As part of the ceremony, people of the neighborhood tie .. ...

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. 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 ...

EPARCHY OF TORONTO (Ukrainian Catholic) Apostolic Administrator Chancery Office Naju, Korea, September 22, 1995 Sworn Testimony of Witnesses of Miraculous transformation of Consecrated Host and Wine, changing into living and moving flesh and blood, when Julia Kim received Holy Communion during the Celebration of the Eucharist at the open air Mass, celebrated in the field of the valley amidst the mountains outside Naju, at 5 p.m. on September 22, 1995. I, Bishop Roman Danylak, Apostolic Administrator of the Eparchy of Toronto for Ukrainian Catholics in Toronto, Canada, and titular bishop of Nyssa, herewith solemnly testify that I concelebrated the Divine Liturgy, or Holy Mass, with the Reverend Fathers Aloysius Chang, parish priest of the Kwangju Archdiocese in Korea, invited by me to assist during my visit to Korea; and Joseph Peter Finn, retired priest of the Diocese of London, Canada, on Friday, September 22, at 5 p.m. in an open air celebration on the grounds of the valley where a future church is to b ...
Divine Liturgy begins at 10am. That's only 10 hours from now.if you dont' make plans to be in Church, the chances are less that you will wake up early enough to be there when it starts. We will continue our theme of changing the way we look at life as Greek Orthodox Christians. Join us and change the way you look at Sunday morning.
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.  These specific ...

In my search through Eastern Orthodoxy, although I do not oppose the way they choose to worship Christ, I find something so very beautiful in a Messiah, Jesus Christ, who accepted poor fishermen like Peter who didnt make the cut through lacking knowledge of the Torah and not being able to find a Rabbi who would accept them. I found that Jesus accepts sinners, regarless of Creed or denomination, not on the basis of them having it right, but on that of them having it wrong and still "hungering and thirsting for righteousness". What is the beautiful news of this beatitude? It is this: "They will be filled." As I searched and searched through the Divine Liturgy and listened to the beautiful chants of monks in distant monasteries in places such as the beautiful Valaam in Russia, I did find something that I will treausure as a Christian man: The Jesus Prayer. It is not the words alone, of this prayer that bless my heart (Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner), it is the heart of the prayer t ...
IN MEMORIAM Dear faithful of St. Spyridon. It is with a deep sense of loss that we regret to inform you of the falling asleep in the Lord of Reverend Protopresbyter Nikiforos Tzerdimos who has been faithfully serving at our parish since 1998.

To be published in The Sower On a hot morning in August 2012, Father Mykhaylo Dosyak, pastor of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Syracuse, New York, and (then) Father Borys Gudziak had just finished concelebrating the Divine Liturgy. Father Borys was visiting his mother in Syracuse, and he celebrated the Liturgy daily at his home parish while in Syracuse. He told Father Mykhaylo that he had to leave for Brazil the next day! With no further explanation, they bid farewell, and hoped to meet again in the winter. Little did Father Mykhaylo know at the time what an auspicious occasion the next meeting would celebrate! The morning news on the internet provided the explanation: Father Borys had been called to Brazil to learn of his appointment as the Apostolic Exarch for the Ukrainian Greek Catholics of France, Switzerland and the Benelux! He would be ordained in July in Ukraine, and ceremonies would follow in Paris later that fall. Father Mykhaylo wrote to Bishop Borys immediately, and remind . ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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,.

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).
This summer, Father Vladimir and Matushka Suzanne Aleandro of Christ the Savior Church in Southbury, Connecticut, will head back to Kenya for their fourth mission trip with the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC).

"There is no more precious moments in our life in the world compared to the times when we celebrated the Divine Liturgy (the Holy mass)."
Great homily by Fr. Thomas Hopko on the election of Abp. Tikhon (Axios!) to be Metropolitan of All American and Canada.
Sadly, Sunday has lost its significance in our society, becoming less of a day of worship of almighty God and more like any ordinary work day. This especially affects our young people who are obligated to attend sports events on Sunday mornings rather than attend the Divine Liturgy. At my request,...
The Sacramental Life of the Church Nourished by the Word and Spirit of God through the sound practice of personal and liturgical prayer, we Orthodox Christians in America must strive to revitalize the mystical, sacramental life of our churches and monasteries. To renew sacramental participation in the life of the Church we need only begin. Everything is there. Nothing needs to be added. All things are prepared. We need only receive what the Church gives us, practice what the Church teaches us. It is a very sad fact, the saddest of facts, that when non-Orthodox Christians are looking to Orthodoxy for guidance in the mystical life of sacramental action in the Church, we Orthodox ourselves are so lacking in proper practice of those sacramental treasures which we possess by the grace of God and the gift of Holy Tradition. Baptisms and chrismations, marriages and funerals, the services of healing through the anointing of the sick must once again be understood and experienced as corporate acts of worship and pr ...

All Saints Orthodox Church 1500 E. Cotati Ave. Rohnert Park, CA 94928 Matins and setup:9:00am Divine Liturgy:10:am Entering Church (Late) Since this is entirely inappropriate, without due cause, for a Christian who has come to worship God, the point is moot. The same goes for leaving services early. Experience testifies that coming to Church late is more a matter of “habit” than circumstance: there are those who come late, and those who don't. Some rules of thumb: Those who arrive late should generally refrain from partaking of the Eucharist that day as “proper preparation” for Holy Communion assumes the ascetical effort of arriving on time service. One should refrain from venerating icons in the front of the church, etc. for the same reasons given under “Lighting Candles.”
Here's a good primer on the Divine Liturgy from the Orthodox Church of America:
St. Basil the Great & St. John Chrysostom are Saints in both the Roman Catholic Church & the Eastern Orthodox Church. They are both Early Fathers of the Christian Faith prior to the Great Schism. St. Basil created the Divine Liturgy & St. John modified it, based on early Christian practices from the time of the Last Supper, which was a Passover Meal. It was here that the New Covenant was established.
On November 4, 2012, H.E. Metropolitan Pachomius and the Holy Synod of the Coptic Orthodox Church celebrated the Divine Liturgy at St. Mark Cathedral in Al Abbassiya, Cairo, Egypt and conducted the ancient apostolic tradition of the Altar Lot to choose the 118th Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria.

For the same reason we embrace each other in the Divine Liturgy; in order that being many, we may become one. And we make common prayer for the uninitiated, for the sick, for the fruits of the earth, and for travellers by land and by sea. Behold the strength of love in the prayers, in the holy mysteries, in the preaching. This is the cause of all good things. If we apply ourselves with due care to these precepts, we shall both administer present things well and obtain the Kingdom. St Anthusa On Ideal Friendship

I find it tragic that the Church, that is meant to reflect Divine simplicity, too often makes liturgy complex & cluttered.

James, the Brother of the Lord Holy Apostle James, the Brother of God (Adelphotheos) was the son of Righteous Joseph the Betrothed of the Most Holy Theotokos (December 26). From his early years James was a Nazarene, a man especially dedicated to God. The Nazarenes vowed to preserve their virginity, to abstain from wine, to refrain from eating meat, and not to cut their hair. The vow of the Nazarenes symbolized a life of holiness and purity, commanded formerly by the Lord for all Israel. When the Savior began to teach the nation about the Kingdom of God, St James believed in Christ and became His apostle. He was chosen as the first Bishop of Jerusalem. St James presided over the Council of Jerusalem and his word was decisive (Acts 15). In his thirty years as bishop, St James converted many of the Jews to Christianity. Annoyed by this, the Pharisees and the Scribes plotted together to kill St James. They led the saint up on the pinnacle of the Jerusalem Temple and asked what he thought of Jesus. The holy Ap ...

I added a video to a playlist Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom - Musical excerpts
1. The Departure of Abba Demetrius I, 12th Pope of Alexandria. On this day of the year 224 A.D., the pure and celibate father, the fighter of lusts, and the vanquisher of nature, Abba Demetrius I, 12th Pope of Alexandria, departed. This saint was an illiterate farmer, and was married. He lived with his wife 47 years until he was chosen a Patriarch. They did not know one another as married people, but remained throughout that period in their virginity and chastity, a fact which no one knew. When the departure of St. Yulianus, 11th Pope, drew near, the angel of the Lord appeared to St. Yulianus in a vision and told him about this saint and that he was to be the Patriarch after him. He gave him a sign saying, "Tomorrow a man shall come to you having a cluster of grapes, seize him and pray over him." Then he woke from his sleep, he told the bishops and the priests who were with him about this vision. So it happened on the next day that St. Demetrius found a cluster of grapes that was out of season. He carried ...

Liturgical Art According to an ancient Christian tradition, the walls and the roof of the church, apart from protecting it from the elements, are closely and organically linked to the mystery which is being celebrated within them. This notion is alien to the modern world. As a matter of fact, more often than not, first the architect designs an empty ‘shell’, then he makes of it a church. On the contrary, there should be an organic relation between the Christian community – celebrating the mystery of salvation and God’s lordship – and the walls, the building, the space the community gathers in. On entering a church, the pictures on the walls should make someone perceive that, yes, he is entering an empty space, but also that this empty space is in fact inhabited; he should feel and experience that he is entering a trans-temporal and trans-spatial communion, a communion he is indeed part of thanks to baptism. The two dimensions of Liturgical Art Liturgical art is an integral part of the space wher ...
