  • The Lords Lamentations


    Keep knocking, and the joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who’s there.
    — Rumi

    All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.
    — Kabir

    Lord, shed upon our darkened souls the brilliant light of your wisdom so that we may be enlightened and serve you with renewed purity. Sunrise marks the hour for men to begin their toil, but in our souls, Lord, prepare a dwelling for the day that will never end.
    — Saint Ephrem the Syrian

    Under a weeping willow the holy mother prayed, and in a soft voice to the willow she spoke: “If you could know my pain, and had heart to soothe me, you would give me your branches.” Then the high willow bowed its head and dropped its branches, and the mother gathered them and wove a crown with no thorns.

  • Angela Gheorghiu / Sacred Romanian Orthodox Church Song


    When I publish this video it's Good Friday 2008, I guess that's why I turned my attention to this peaceful music, full of mysterious beauty.
    Famous Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu, the Romanian National Chamber Choir Madrigal and the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Ion Marin, perform the sacred prayer song 'Priveghiati si va rugati' ('Watch and pray'), a gem from the Romanian Orthodox Church music repertory. The composer is Gheorge Popescu-Branesti.

    here are the lines:
    priveghiati si va rugati (watch and pray)
    ca sa nu cadeti in ispita (that ye enter not into temptation)
    sufletul este zelos (the spirit indeed is willing)
    iara trupul neputincios (but the flesh is weak)

    The recording is from Angela Gheorghiu's album 'Mysterium - Sacred Arias' (2001), that I highly recommend. Buy it and hear more of this great music!

    from the liner notes (by Alexander Gerdanovits):
    This music (..) has over the years taken on a deeply spiritual quality for Angela Gheorghiu. Its profound significance had already revealed itself to her in her Romanian childhood home of Adjud, where she and her sister Nina would sing it together. (..) these songs possess great emotional, almost ineffable power for the singer. They evoke for her the mystical aura of Orthodox churches, dominated by incense and candlelight, and the spiritual intimacy of Moldavian monasteries in Northern Romania. They express a reverent awe in the presence of the mysterium fascinans, in which the full plenitude of existence is made manifest, as is the yearning for God. Traditionally they have always been sung by a choir. On this cd they are heard for the first time with orchestral accompaniment, specially created for the recording.

    The pictures in my video are mostly beautiful icons and fresco's from orthodox churches and monasteries in Eastern Europe.

    Peace for Everyone...

    About how the devil appeared to the bride during the elevation of the body of Christ, speaking to her and trying to prove by argument that what was being elevated was not the body of Christ. An angel of the Lord appeared to her right away to comfort her and tell her not to trust the devil. Also, about how Christ appears and forces the devil to tell her the truth, and about how the body of Christ is received by the wicked as well as the good, and concerning the proper remedy in temptations regarding the body of Christ.

    A monstruous creature appeared to the bride at the elevation of the body of Christ and said: Do you really believe, silly woman, that this wafer of bread is God? Even if he had been the highest of mountains, he would have been consumed long ago. None of the wise Jews to whom God has given wisdom believes this, nor can anyone believe that God would allow himself to be touched and loved by a most impure priest with the heart of a dog. If you would ascertain the truth of what I say, well, this priest is mine and whenever I want - and he is at the point of it now - I will snatch him away to myself.

    Right then, a good angel appeared and said: O, daughter, answer not a fool according to his folly! It is the father of lies who has appeared to you. But get ready, for our bridegroom is now near. Jesus the Bridegroom came and said to the devil: Why are you troubling my daughter and bride? I call her daughter, because I created her, and I call her bride, because I redeemed her and have joined her to myself through my love. The devil answered: I am speaking to her so that she will grow cold in your service, because I have been given permission.

    The Lord said: She experienced that last night when you pressed down on her eyes and the rest of her body and would have done worse, if you had been allowed. Instead, each time she resists your intrusions, her rewards will be doubled. However, devil, as you were saying that I would have been consumed long ago, answer me while she is listening with her physical sense of hearing. Scripture says that, when the people were perishing, a bronze serpent was raised up and everyone who had been bitten was cured upon looking at it. Tell me whether this curative force came from the power of the bronze or the kind of snake or the virtue of Moses or was it a divine and hidden force? The devil answered: The curative force came from nothing other than God's own power and from the faith of a believing and obedient people who believed that God, having made all things out of nothing, was also able to do all sorts of things that had never been done before.

    1. Binecuvintează, suflete al meu, pe Domnul şi toate cele dinlăuntrul meu, numele cel sfânt al Lui.
    2. Binecuvintează, suflete al meu, pe Domnul şi nu uita toate răsplătirile Lui.
    3. Pe Cel ce curăţeşte toate fărădelegile tale, pe Cel ce vindecă toate bolile tale;
    4. Pe Cel ce izbăveşte din stricăciune viaţa ta, pe Cel ce te încununează cu milă şi cu îndurări;

    6. Cel ce face milostenie, Domnul, şi judecată tuturor celor ce li se face strâmbătate.
    7. Cunoscute a făcut căile Sale lui Moise, fiilor lui Israel voile Sale.
    8. Îndurat şi milostiv este Domnul, îndelung-răbdător şi mult-milostiv.
    9. Nu până în sfârşit se va iuţi, nici în veac se va mânia.
    10. Nu după păcatele noastre a făcut nouă, nici după fărădelegile noastre a răsplătit nouă,
    11. Ci cât este departe cerul de pământ, atât este de mare mila Lui, spre cei ce se tem de El.
    12. Pe cât sunt de departe răsăriturile de la apusuri, depărtat-a de la noi fărădelegile noastre.
    13. În ce chip miluieşte tatăl pe fii, aşa a miluit Domnul pe cei ce se tem de El;
    14. Că El a cunoscut zidirea noastră, adusu-şi-a aminte că ţărână suntem.
    15. Omul ca iarba, zilele lui ca floarea câmpului; aşa va înflori.
    16. Că vânt a trecut peste el şi nu va mai fi şi nu se va mai cunoaşte încă locul său.

    18. Şi dreptatea Lui spre fiii fiilor, spre cei ce păzesc legământul Lui

    20. Binecuvântaţi pe Domnul toţi îngerii Lui, cei tari la vârtute, care faceţi cuvântul Lui şi auziţi glasul cuvintelor Lui.
    21. Binecuvântaţi pe Domnul toate puterile Lui, slugile Lui, care faceţi voia Lui.
    22. Binecuvântaţi pe Domnul toate lucrurile Lui; în tot locul stăpânirii Lui, binecuvintează suflete al meu pe Domnul.

    ***************Romanian text here:****************
    Psalmul 50:
    Milostive, miluieşte-mă, Dumnezeule, după mare mila Ta, şi după mulţimea îndurărilor Tale, şterge fărădelegea mea. Mai vârtos mă spăla de fărădelegea mea şi de păcatul meu curăţeşte-mă. Că fărădelegea mea eu o cunosc şi păcatul meu înaintea mea este pururea. Ţie unuia am greşit şi rău înaintea Ta am făcut, ca să fii îndreptăţit întru cuvintele Tale şi biruitor când vei judeca Tu. Că iată întru fărădelegi m-am zămislit şi întru păcate m-a născut maica mea. Că iată adevărul ai iubit; cele nearătate şi ascunse ale înţelepciunii Tale, mi le-ai arătat. Stropi-mă-vei cu isop şi mă voi curăţi; spală-mă-vei şi mai vârtos decât zăpada mă voi albi. Auzului meu vei da bucurie şi veselie; bucura-se-vor oasele mele cele smerite. Întoarce faţa Ta de către păcatele mele şi toate fărădelegile mele şterge-le. Inimă curată zideşte întru mine, Dumnezeule şi duh drept înnoieşte întru cele dinlăuntru ale mele. Nu mă lepăda de la faţa Ta şi Duhul Tău cel sfânt nu-l lua de la mine. Dă-mi mie bucuria mântuirii Tale şi cu duh stăpânitor mă întăreşte. Învăţa-voi pe cei fără de lege căile Tale, şi cei necredincioşi se vor întoarce la Tine. Izbăveşte-mă de sângiuri, Dumnezeule, Dumnezeul mântuirii mele; bucura-se-va limba mea de dreptatea Ta. Doamne, buzele mele vei deschide şi gura mea va vesti lauda Ta. Că de ai fi voit jertfa, ţi-as fi dat; arderile de tot nu le vei binevoi. Jertfa lui Dumnezeu: duhul umilit; inima înfrântă şi smerită Dumnezeu nu va urgisi. Fă bine, Doamne, întru bunăvoirea Ta, Sionului, şi să se zidească zidurile Ierusalimului. Atunci vei binevoi jertfa dreptăţii, prinosul şi arderile de tot; atunci vor pune pe altarul Tău viţei şi mă miluieşte Dumnezeule!

    SYMPOSIUM Intent

    The symposium has been intended to propose to the public the most viable, actual and inspiring ideas of the Orthodox thinking via two venues: (1) conferences held by the well-known hierarchs, theologians and professors in North - America and not only; (2) papers written by the younger theologians able to bring foreword their dynamic, creative and fresh spirit. We hoped that this initiative will give a push at the creation of a Christian orthodox forum, open to all, able to propose in a flexible, coherent and genuine way ideas for future solutions from an Orthodox Christian standpoint to the multiple challenges the contemporary society is confronted to.

    From the outset the symposium has been designed to become: (a) a forum able to build a modern, coherent and consistent Christian Orthodox vision; (b) to bring a present witness to those who look for spiritual and intellectual resourcing while addressing some of the above mentioned challenges. Every year we chose a topic we thought relevant for the contemporary debates.

    The organization of the symposium has been based on the idea of partnership: our Archdiocese (Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas) and a University. We sponsored the event while involving guest
    - speakers from various theological departments. This has been the way in which we understood to promote collaboration and dialogue between institutions at different levels.

    Last but not least we hope in this way to partially overcome the gap which separates since some time the academic theology with its relevant achievements and the Church's life. We are convinced that from this collaboration both of them, Church and University, will result enriched: (1) the academic theology will be lighted up through the living instinct and experience of the Church's life; (2) the Church will discern better the historical context of its own faith and tradition.

    This will allow us to strengthen and affirm the already emerging Orthodox Christian leadership in North - America and not only, setting us in a position of continuity with the patristic thinking and the newer theological tradition of 20th century.

    Short thematic history and participants:
    2008: Transfiguration in Christ (Union Theological Seminary - Columbia University, New York)
    2009: The Cappadocians. Theology and Spirituality for 21st century (Concordia University, Montreal)
    2010: Nicaea and Constantinople - a confession of faith - witness and source of unity (University of St. Thomas, St. Paul Minnesota)
    2011: The Sacraments - ways of sanctification (Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute - St. Paul University, Ottawa)
    2012: The Sacrament of Anointing and the Care of the Sick (Hellenic College Holy Cross - Greek Orthodox School of Theology, Brookline, Boston)

    Among the most well-known guest - speakers we had until now we can number Metropolitan Seraphim Joanta of Germany, prof. John McGuckin, prof. Charles Kannegiesser, prof. Pamela Bright, prof. Lucian Turcescu, prof. Peter Galadza, prof. Paul Meyendorff and other young intellectuals.

  • 1.0 Vestment of His Eminence Archbishop Dr. Nathaniel Popp


    The Archbishop Nathaniel Popp kindly visited the Descent of the Holy Spirit Romanian Orthodox Church, Glenside (near Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, on November 4, 2018. He was accompanied by Rev. Fr. Don Hoarste, who along with the Archbishop, came from the Vatra Romaneasca, Grass Lake, Michigan, the headquarters of the Romanian Episcopate. His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel became the Archbishop of Detroit and the Romanian Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) in 1999.

    Before the Divine Liturgy begins, the priest and the deacon (if the perish has one) bow 3 times in front of the holy table, the altar, in the sanctuary behind the iconastas (the icon frames with three doors) and exit the sanctuary. (Not shown in the video which begins with Archbishop's vestment, as explained in this video.) They come to the middle of the nave, facing the holy door (the center door). They bow 3 times toward the Holy Sanctuary and, if present, go to the Hierarch (such as bishop or archbishop) for his blessing, and come back to the middle, facing east toward the Holy Sanctuary (through the center door). Exchanging some chants and prayers, including the Lord's Prayer, the priest enters the sanctuary and kisses the Holy Gospel Book which is laid on the altar. Then, the vesting of the deacon takes place in the sanctuary, to be followed by the vesting of the priest. If the bishop or the archbishop is present, as was the case here, the vestment of the bishop or the archbishop takes place in the nave in full view of the congregation (as this video begins.)

    As is explained in the video, the archbishop's or bishop's outer garment or the vest (sachos) is the same as the Emperor's vest, as is the crown that the he wears (as seen in the next segment). After the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the center of Orthodox Christendom; and the Emperor's death, the Archbishop took over the role of the Emperor as the spiritual leader. But as early as the time of Justinian I (527-565), the liturgy began to take the imperial tone, especially after the construction of Hagia Sophia in 532. (See Robert F. Taft, The Byzantine Rite: A Short History, (Collegeville, Minnesota: The Liturgical Press, 1992), 28). Still, the humility of Christ is preserved in the liturgy as the archbishop wears the epigonos (over the knee), which symbolizes the shield of faith but also was used to collect alms for the poor, as is explained here by Rev. Fr. Hoarste.

    Alexander Schmemann, the former dean and professor of Liturgical Theology at St Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary, summarizes the entire liturgy as follows: The liturgy, as a sacrament, begins with the preparation of the holy gifts and the assembly as the Church. After the gathering follows the entrance and the proclamation of the word of God, and after that the offering, the placing of the eucharistic gifts on the altar. After the kiss of peace and the confession of faith we begin the anaphora: the lifting up of the gifts in the prayer of thanksgiving and remembrance. The anaphora concludes with the epiklesis, i.e., the prayer that God will manifest the Holy Spirit, will show the bread and wine of our offering to be the body and blood of Christ and make us worthy to partake of it (The Eucharist: Sacrament of the Kingdom, trans. Paul Kachur, (Crestwood, New York: St Vladimir's Seminary Press, 1987), 216).

    루마니아 북부 마라무레슈 지역의 데세슈티 정교회당은 유네스코 문화유산으로 등재된 교회 중의 하나다. 우리가 방문한 날은 날씨가 아주 좋았기 때문에 신부님은 야외정자에서 미사를 집전하고 신자들은 그 주변의 정원처럼 꾸며놓은 묘지들 사이사이에 자유롭게 흩어져 선 채로 미사를 본다. 동방정교회의 미사는 처음부터 끝까지 의례 위주로 진행되며 아카펠라 합창단의 도움이 없이는 미사를 진행할 수 없다. 신부님이 경전의 말씀을 읽거나 기도문을 읽을 때마다 성가대의 노래가 이어지기 때문에 미사의 대부분은 음악으로 채워진다 해도 과언이 아니다.

    Laudă, suflete al meu, pe Domnul.
    Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul.
    2 While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

    3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

    4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

    5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:

    6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

    7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth the prisoners:

    8 The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous:

    9 The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

    10 The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord.

    1. Laudă, suflete al meu, pe Domnul.
    2. Lăuda-voi pe Domnul în viaţa mea, cânta-voi Dumnezeului meu cât voi trăi.
    3. Nu vă încredeţi în cei puternici, în fiii oamenilor, în care nu este izbăvire.
    4. Ieşi-va duhul lor şi se vor întoarce în pământ. În ziua aceea vor pieri toate gândurile lor.
