I should point out that quite a few well-respected American psaltes chant from tablets. Haters can hate, but until somebody produces actual books for psaltes to use, this will probably remain the case. I welcome all of those who complain to learn how to read psaltic notation, compose a full English language anastasimatarion, heirmologion (may require creating metered translations from the Greek), doxastarion, and anthologies for the liturgy and other common akolouthies of feasts and mysteries used throughout the year, and then to open a publishing company and publish these books. Once that is done, I will gladly stop using my tablet in favor of printed books.

I hope the ad orientem returns to use in the western churches.  While I don't think it effects the validity, there is a certain degree of lack of dignity in the versus populum, and it rests on some bad historicism by Dom Gregory Dix.

At the Lutheran church I attend, the pastor and deacons at least pray ad orientem facing the altar.  That is rare in most Protestant churches I have attended, most rarely face ad orientem.

You really don't like your boss, eh, Antonis?

He knows very well that the GOAA is under the aegis of the EP.

HAH Bartholomew I is his and my Patriarch, whether he likes it or not, unless he changes churches.

Then, 20-year-old chanters know everything, as I'm sure he'll tell you.

You should pray for the soul of James.

The "Schlock Icon" thread is over there somewhere...
...and some Episcopal church somewhere has probably put it up next to St. Martin Luther King, Jr. the New-Martyr of America already.

If only I was a descendant of Piast Kołodziej, founder of the Piast dynasty of Kings of Poland.
Of course, names didn't work that way back then. But it makes for a better story than being a descendant of peasants from Kąkolówka, one of whom made wheels...

I'm trying to work something out so that I can attend. It seems like a longshot, but I'm only 3 hrs. from Princeton, NJ via public transit from the Philadelphia suburban area. I'm sure I'd get lost on the campus, however.
