Christmas eve / day Divine Liturgy videos
« on: December 25, 2009, 01:13:20 PM »
Christ is Born!

In this thread, I would like for us to provide video links to Divine Services celebrating the Nativity of Christ from today or yesterday (Dec. 24/25).

Also, I would like for this thread to be used for those on the Old Calendar (who celebrate His Nativity on Jan. 7) . :angel:

She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

Thanks Augustin, the contrast between those two services is amazing!

What's happening in the first takes place at the end of the actual service-caroling.
In the second you see the reading of the Gospel at the Liturgy on Christmas day.

I just thought I'd bump this in case anyone on the Old Calendar would like to share some videos.

These video clips were made in a Ukrainian Eastern Rite Catholic parish, but I do know that the singing in any Ukrainian Orthodox Church on the Holy Nativity day is the same:

It always attracts large, rather unruly crowds in Romania.
