Bless, Father James,

Very well put!

Many years,

Respectfully,I don't think the Rosary is acceptable in this situation either. A cantor (or reader or any layperson) can be easily trained to read the third or sixth hour


I agree. For the UGCC our Anthology has instructions for chanting the Little Hours recto tono with instructions including how to find the troparion and kontakion for each hour, variations if a priest is not present or predisposed, (Proskomidia, confessions, etc.) etc.

At my church, we do not have a group saying the rosary before the liturgy, but I do see individuals praying it by themselves.

In Orthodoxy, the Rule of prayer of the Most Holy Mother of God (aka the Rosary) is a private form of prayer that is never said in Church as liturgical prayers are.

At the Diveyevo Monastery in Russia, the nuns there were under the guidance of St Seraphim of Sarov who promoted the daily recitation of all 150 Hail Mary's. To this day, the nuns go as a group around the monastery reciting the prayers and, on feastdays, they sing the Hail Mary's.

This private form of prayer, which St Seraphim of Sarov said the Mother of God revealed to him as THE most important form of prayer to Her to invoke her protection over our lives, can/should be said daily by all Orthodox Christians and Eastern Catholics. It can be said at home or privately in church before Divine Liturgy and also afterwards, and in every place.

The Young Fogey/Sergei has a link on his website on how to say it in the Eastern tradition.
