With blessing of my priest to celebrate on the new calendar, I've been to the vigil and Liturgy of the Nativity of the Theotokos feast :) Took  Holy Communion, chanted a lof of stuff at the vigil and the Epistle at the Liturgy without any mishups :)
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria

An unexpected (and fun!) source of French practice.

Good!

I'm going to liturgy now.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

The 12-year-old teaching the 8-year-old how to prepare slides.  :D
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Actually the same, as it goes for today's feast of the Holy Cross :) Well, I've chanted a bit less at the vigil, but today I chanted therd hour and the Epistle.

I'm just wondering if there come such one beautiful day, that I'll be informed about me reading the Epistle (both in Church Slavonic or Polish) lety's say.. if not the day before, so, maybe before the Liturgy? I'm asked to do it usually after the beginning of Liturgy, the books is given to me and I have fastly see what's going on in the text and how to do it regading the content and melody, and of course, the prokimenon(s)  :laugh:
There were only 3 situations, that I'd been informed some time before, but taking into account that were so unusual and important (especially chanting the Epistle in Arabic at Liturgy with patriarchat of Antioch and metropolitan of Poland with direct TV broadcast in the national tv, with crowds of thousands believers), it may would have been a bt earlier than an evening before.

Well, maybe if I - if it's God's Will - become tonsured reader, such situations should be considered pretty normal...

I think it's great you can even jump in on short notice like that!  Advance warning is nice, though.  :)
