Lost for now.
So, this video was uploaded a couple days ago, from Saint Michael's Orthodox parish. It's a Solemn High Mass from Saint Michael's Orthodox Church.

This icon has sort of followed me throughout my life, even when I knew nothing about it.  It has never been more than a few feet away from me for many years now.

Is beating the breast the tradition?

(From the same mass.  Watch the altar servers)

Yes. I vaguely remember some ancient western Father saying that when all struck their breasts during the Mass it sounded like thunder, and even the newest Vatican Roman Missal calls for it if the (watered-down) "I confess to Almighty God" is used.

Here is Lauds and the Mass from last Sunday from the church of Our Lady & St Thiebault, just outside of Gorze. This was for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany.


Here is some video I shot at the same church for the Exaltation of the Cross in 2018.

Beautiful singing.


Is your community French-speaking?
They do sing beautifully, don't they?

However, my own community is a tiny, new mission in the UK. The videos are from a sister parish with a resident community attached, where they practise hesychastic prayer alongside the Divine Office. In non-COVID times, I visit and stay with them in France a few times each year.

You're under the Orthodox Church of the Gauls?

I always strike my breast with my left hand while saying the first Communion Prayer of the Divine Liturgy "....Who didst come into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first...."

We are. I had hoped to take some of our people out to France last autumn but then the world was turned on its head.
Please, don't take me wrong, but are you people interested in being in communion with the Eastern Orthodox Church? Or any other church body? If not, why?

There is or used to be a parish near my homem from either your jurisdiction or one of the others in communion. I can't find anything about it right now, not sure if it's just me or if they vanished.

Be at peace. It is a perfectly legitimate question. I hope you don't mind that I have responded on the thread dedicated to the EOG, so as not to distract from the conversation here about videos.
