Poll for Antiochian Members re Commemoration
« on: March 10, 2009, 08:24:02 AM »
It would be interesting to know if Antiochian priests and parishes are ceasing to commemorate their local Hierarchs.   I can imagine, given the love and loyalty which must have developed over the years, that obeying the Directive of non-commemoration could be a difficult thing to do.

My own poor prayers, and I am sure the prayers of others, are supporting the Antiochian faithful at this stressful time.

Bishop Thomas was visiting on Orthodoxy Sunday so I will have to see if he will be commemorated on  St. Gregory Palamas Sunday. The bishops in the Feb 24th synod were commemorated also.

No we didn't. The deacon almost said the bishop's name but caught himself. We did however commemorate his name during the Compline services we had through last week but we didn't during Vespers and Liturgy on Sunday. It is really sad that we can't commemorate Bishop MARK anymore.

No more mentions of Bishop BASIL.  A lot of people noticed that during Compline last night and asked about it.  They are equally outraged by what is going on.

I voted, but won't say how at the moment.  One of our priests (we have an Arab and a convert), is rather well known.

I imagine the change for our parish will take a bit of time, maybe next week they will do the switch. We just had to do a complete a liturgy overhaul. We sang sections that we were instructed to no longer sing and we had to change the language to an older phrasing. They took a couple months to completely change over. Our priest announced the decision after Liturgy Sunday. But since I have a loud busy son, I didn't hear what he said since I had to take that son out of the nave.

Really?  You completely changed your music?  Not just the commemoration.  That sounds rather extreme.

This change was ennacted months ago. Apparently we were being "more OCA like" by singing the creed and having more modern english. So we were instructed to change. I miss singing the creed. It helped me remember it. :(

Gotcha.  thanks.  Well, my OCA parish probably uses "less modern" English than the majority - especially if you compare with parishes back east.

I'm glad I'm not the only one.  I can remember the creed word for word when I sing it, but just saying it I don't have the spacing and cadences to help me remember what comes next.  It seems strange that the Antiochian church would be concerned about being too much like the OCA.  Why would it make any difference?  We're in communion with each other, so it's not like either way is technically wrong.

I think the change was made so that all Antiochian liturgies are the same as a whole. So it was for consistency more than anything.

Having gone from Antiochian to OCA, the latter use a beautiful translation, but it is, indeed, more "modern" English than the Antiochian translation. It isn't usually radically different, just enough to trip you up. The worst, however, is the Prayer before Communion. I still fall into the Antiochian prayer, and get completely lost toward the end, when it is very different. My priest says the Antiochians initially took the text from the Anglicans when the translation existed, which accounts for the "antiquated" English. The Antiochian translations are beautiful English, reminiscent of KJV English, whereas the OCA translations are more RSV English.

Antiochian:
Not unto judgment nor unto condemnation be my partaking of Thy Holy Mysteries, O Lord, but unto the healing of soul and body.

OCA:
May the communion of Thy Holy Mysteries be neither to my judgment, nor to my condemnation, O Lord, but to the healing of soul and body.

If I may also ask who WAS commemorated, that would be great (if any of you could provide that information)! 
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

On the main topic, forgive me for being poorly informed please but why aren't the Antiochians commemorating their bishops?

There is a huge topic on the forum about the issue: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,19965.0.html

In a few sentences:
Holy Synod of Antiochan Church made all diocesan Bishops no longer diocesan Bishops but only Metropolitan's vicars and Auxiliary (is spelling correct?) Bishops. They do not longer head their former Dioceses.

They can be commemorated during the DL only when they are present.

Funny I should see this today.  This Sunday we had a chorbishop from India visiting.  He mentioned that chorbishops used to have authority, but now they are just under the metropolitan.  We all laughed and said, "we know how that goes."

Who?  The chorbishop or the priest?

The chorbishop didn't concelebrate, so nobody.

The priest commemorated Met. Philip, and then among "our brethren in Christ, our bishop Mark."
