Vespers, Matins & the Divine Liturgy
02/15/18 03:38 PM
I'm just curious if anyone knew of a good visual (i.e. with accompanying pictures) guide to all of the various Greek and Slavonic terms used for the Byzantine rite (e.g. diskos, antidoron, aer, orarion, etc.) for neophytes and older children. Thanks!

My prayers to all the students who perished in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting this afternoon. And to all the families of the deceased. Vechnaya Pamiat'! Memory Eternal!

It is hard to believe, but the Berlin Wall is now gone as long as long as it stood.

"Circle day"- that's how some Germans refer to February 5, 2018.

It's the day when the Wall has been gone for as long as it stood.

DW's Klaus Krämer shares his recollections of Germany's division and reunification.

New FREE APP for iPhone

Eastern Christian Publications has also completed design and development of a smartphone app that is now available for FREE download in the Apple Store for all iOS devices and Google Play for Android. The name of the app is "ECPubs" -- just search for this in the stores and install.

It provides several unique features for Eastern Christians:

Saint of the Day -- Icons and Troparia with one touch
Java with Jesus -- daily reflection from a book of the same title
The Hours -- the same Hours provided by email, changed each day
Daily Vespers -- the Propers, Reader Service and Clergy version with all changeable parts
Sunday Bulletin -- icon and text commentary for the week
Theosis Magazine -- the ezine version of our monthly magazine
Book of the Month -- a short description of a book from our catalog
Intro to Prayer -- an explanation of the Byzantine Daily Office
Websites -- links to all of our websites

Please pass this information on to your friends, relatives and fellow parishioners. We hope this will encourage more people to pray daily by providing an easy method to follow the Byzantine Daily Office tradition.

We are also working on an app for OLTV that will provide free access to audios and videos produced by the Orientale Lumen Foundation including liturgies, lectures, plenary sessions, concert tour music, and special events. We also hope to create a Q&A type format from our archive of lectures that will be relevant for millennials and other younger generation faithful. Watch this space for more updates in the near future!
