Reader's Akathist
« on: September 25, 2007, 02:47:36 PM »
Hi all,

In the most recent edition of the Jordanville prayer books, it says in the section on "Reading Canons Akathists Alone" that one should....
"After Ode IX, if there are no more prayers to be read, then say:
It is truly meet
Prayer after the canon(s)
Trisagion through Our Father
Lord have mercy (x3)
More honorable
Through the prayers"
(paraphrased)


What if it's an Akathist read by itself?  There are 13 Kontakions to that one, and you go back to Ikos I before you finish it.....  How does one put together a Reader's form of the prayer after the Akathist?

Depends on the Akathist, most akathists are Reader friendly and have to be really filled out  by one of the hours to be read in church. It is really a vox populi.

Ah, I see.  I will ask my priest if I can do a reader's form of the Paraklesis in public at my alma mater........
Christ is risen!
Cristo ha resucitado!
