    Finally made it to my first WR Liturgy

    And it was reverent and beautiful and more importantly Orthodox. I drove an hour to St Vincent of Lerins in Omaha, NE. It is part of the Antiochian Archdiocese. They use the corrected BCP from Lancelot Andrewes Press. https://andrewespress.com/product/the-book-of-common-prayer/ The priest, Fr...

    Liturgy

    I can't remember where I heard it but I have heard that the liturgy we use now is basically the monastic version of the liturgy and that before it became normative parishes had simpler services. Is that correct? If so do we know what these parish services looked like?

    Couple of questions regarding the western rite

    I figured I would ask those of you more knowledgeable on the WR these questions: 1) Why doesn't the OCA have a WR? Are they afraid it will upset RWRV or AWRV? 2) Was the recent ROCOR 2015 conference a clergy conference? I didn't notice any laity in the pictures posted online.

    Why did Moses kill the Midianites?

    Perhaps this has been answered before but i couldn't find a topic for it. Why did Moses kill(murder/massacre/butcher take your pick) the midianites: men, women, and children? Wasn't it Jethroh and the midianites that took him in when he fled Egypt? wasn't he married to a midianite woman? I just...
