Pero esto que dices se hará mañana, ¿no? Tal vez no pueda ver la vigilia hoy... :/ Además, vosotros habláis español muy bien. Yo comprendo 100% pero aún hago errores muy básicos, generalmente porque hay diferencias con las cuales no me acostumbro entre el español y el portugués.
If you require the Latin, the St. Michael's Abbey is probably the way to go, although the "1962" books have truncated a lot of content compared to the historic Breviary. I have the Lancelot Andrewes Press Monastic Diurnal; it's entirely in Book of Common Prayer-style English, but it is very nice. A bit pricy at $65 if it's not exactly what you want, but I like it a lot, and I have owned several Roman breviaries and diurnals. In terms of quality, it compares very favorably to my old breviaries from the mid-1940s. Lancelot Andrewes Press also has a monastic Matins book for $45, so you could have the complete monastic office in English for $110. The one downside to the Matins book is that it is completely monochrome; the diurnal has red rubrications, which looks nice.

From same language with different names to roughly mutually understandable, how close is Bulgarian to Macedonian? Enjoy the trip!

Para la fiesta de Dormición se sirve un servicio muy similar en la estructura y melodias como el para el Gran Sabado - el funerario de Cristo.

En el centro de la iglesia tambien se pone el epitafio, pero de la Virgen, y antes de el se canta las lamentaciones divididas en tres estasis, aqui pueden escucharlas en la lengua espanola:
Primera estasis
Segunda estasis
Tercera estasis

Despues se canta los Eulogitarios (pero esos de la Virgen) y en el fin de la Gran Doxologia se hace una procesion alrededor de la iglesia con el epitafio.

Aqui pueden escuchar el tropario de la fiesta en el espanol:
En el parto conservaste la virginidad
y en la Dormición no descuidaste al. mundo, oh Madre de Dios;
porque te trasladaste a la vida
por ser la madre de la Vida.
Por tus intercesiones, salva de la muerte nuestras almas.

"r" and "t" are close on keyboard.

Just a hint.

Well, if you don't mind helping me, what is a generic principle then?

Upon watching the video I found it to be a forceful and eloquent protest against the LGBT movement, expressed from the persepctive of a truly benign and unselfish homophobia; that is to say, a brotherly concern for what will happen to people who openly embrace these sins on the day of jusgement, given the specific fate of Sodom.

Now one can argue that there are other sins we are turning a blind eye to, but I think this is not the case; the Orthodox Church as a whole has priests who condemn daily all sorts of sin, while they themselves struggle and occasionally succumb to the passions which produce such hamartia.

If we are to say that theosis is the objective of Orthodoxy, we cannot ignore what was said by Moses, our Lord and St. Paul; we should instead accuse ourselves, because all of us have had unclean thoughts about sexuality, and we must aim to govern and purify this passion either by taming it and directing it towards the betterment of society through reproduction in marriage, or suppressing it outright in monasticism (which by the way is not inherently the ideal course of action for the homosexually inclined; this instead varies and is something to be discussed with ones confessor).

Specifically in reply to the justifiable, but I believe, invalid, concerns expressed by Minasoliman:

I take no offense at his delivering this speech in Georgia; the Georgian laws on the subject seem proper and correct, the main problems being a culture of somewhat heavy handed policing inherited from the Soviet Militsya.  The Soviet police were always organized as a military force, and videos one finds on the Internet show that Russian police can be quite ferocious.  The use of excess force in enforcing the laws is sinful and represents a form of abuse of the human image which Fr. Trenham has previously held to be sacred, and tempering the police to act with a minimum of force, something the British police have historically enjoyed a good reputation for in decades past, should be on the agenda of the Orthodox church in each Orthodox country.  Also the police must protect people from being assaulted, whatever the reason, and I did not see Fr. Trenham inciting or encouraging the Georgian people to go beyond the law and impose vigilante justice on homosexuals.

However, I think you were very correct to raise this point; I recently came across a very interesting book on law, order and policing in the former Soviet Union which I believe is directly applicanle to your concerns as well as other recent controversies such as Euromaidan, which I will dig up a URL for if desired.  Essentially, however, the problem devolves to a purely political question of law and order, and how these are to be enforced, but God's law remains the same everywhere, so thus it would not matter if Fr. Trenham had delivered this speech in Tblisi or here in Los Angeles.
