    tv/projector screens during liturgical services??

    dzheremi, it isn't only parishes (sadly) which use them...I went to a US (Coptic) monastery for a visit last summer and they also used the screen extensively...clearly your situation is different from mine so I cannot really comment because I've never been in your shoes. I'm not trying to start...

    tv/projector screens during liturgical services??

    Mina habibi, most churches these days have books with 2 or 3 languages printed side by side...tons and tons of books! There's no reason not to simply notify people of changes such as differing anaphoras or fraction prayers etc. Theres also lots of books for communion hymns that are often placed...

    tv/projector screens during liturgical services??

    Actually I was talking about Coptic Orthodox parishes. Based on what biro said: "There is such a thing as what is tasteful and appropriate. I'm not sure that I want church to be the same atmosphere as a baseball game. An air conditioner creates no such problem. A giganto screen and subtitles...

    tv/projector screens during liturgical services??

    Hi, I recently went to a few Orthodox churches and I noticed that they had projector or tv screens positioned immediately above the iconostasis or to the side of the iconostasis during the divine liturgy. It had the text of the liturgy displayed so that the laity could follow along with the...

    Artoklasia-Blessing of 5 Loaves service??

    Thanks guys, I found the service in the Liturgikon from Narthex Press. I am typing it right now and it is a lot to type, especially in Greek! It has to be inserted into the Festal Vespers of Prophet Elias. I can't believe this service is not online anywhere. Oh well...If I had my own website for...

    Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol on the Upcomg Visit of Pope to Cyprus

    Forget entering into communion at this point. At least show them some basic love and respect!

    Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol on the Upcomg Visit of Pope to Cyprus

    Umm, the Metropolitan wasn't simply 'rebuking error'. He was attacking the pope...the fact that he was even attacking the pope's visit is unChristian. He is also showing no respect to the Catholics (Maronite and Latin) on the island by his statements. As for me not being really Orthodox...I...

    11 million Irish Americans leave Catholic Church

    Umm...obviously because they are (or were) still Christians. These people have souls too. They are not made out of stone just because they are Catholic.

    Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol on the Upcomg Visit of Pope to Cyprus

    May God forgive  the Metropolitan for his words of bitterness and hatred against our fellow-Christian brothers. I don't know why but it seems that it is typical that many Orthodox think it is OK to not follow our Lord's teaching on loving others. Catholics have some differences between us but...

    Antiochian liturgy:St.John or St. James??

    I wonder if a workable solution would be to conduct the Byzantine St. James liturgy as a way to keep both the Greek and Syriac elements in the Antiochian church.  I've been last fall to the Byzantine liturgy of St. James and its still very Byzantine of course but there is that Syriac element to...
