Text for St. George matins
« on: April 21, 2009, 03:13:22 PM »
I've compiled the text (in both Greek and English, although in separate files) for the full matins of Bright Thursday/St. George's Day 2009, including the canons and all hymns, as directed by the Typikon of the Great Church (i.e. Typikon of Constantinople).  If anyone is interested, just PM me, and I'll email it to you.

The English text uses a mix of Fr. Seraphim Dedes' translations, with HTM material.

Each text is about 21 pages long (12pt font, .6" margins).

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Did you mean Bright Thursday?  (not Holy Thursday...?)

Also, out of curiousity, why are you offering...because no one else has done it..?
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

Thank you for catching that.  I've corrected it now.

Also, out of curiousity, why are you offering...because no one else has done it..?

Because usually people don't compile the whole service; for example, the copy on Palamas' website doesn't have the full canon, and has mistakes (at least, according to the Constantinopolitan usage).

Plus, I'm offering because I had to go through the work to get this ready for the parish, and might as well make it available to others now that I've done the work.
