I have a genuine question. I have been Orthodox now for 17 years and have always attended Orthodox parishes of a Slavic background. I was watching a program on yourtube about Orthodox Holy Week produced by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. It was excellent and I learned a lot from it. One big difference I noticed, though, was that it talked about the entire congregation receiving the Sacrament of Unction on Holy Wednesday. My OCA parish does not do this and apparently, never has. We have the Bridegroom Matins services, of course. We just don't have the Sacrament of Unction during Holy Week. Any thoughts on why this is so? Is there a difference between Greek and Slavic usage on this point? I am not scolding anybody or faulting anybody. My parish has a huge number of Holy Week services. I just wondered if this was, perhaps, a liturgical difference between the Byzantine tradition and the Slavic tradition. I await your replies.
