I guess I'm weird too: I look forward to a week day DL to prostrate at the epiclesis.
OK! So I'm clear on what's been stated in the thread thus far concerning full, head on the ground prostrations, here's the deal in general:
Never on Sundays, nor between Pascha and Pentecost. While we are this point, are the Sunday prohibitions in effect from Great Vespers on Saturday evening until vespers on Sunday evening?
Times when full prostrations are
appropriate in church during services:
Throughout Lent, during entrance and exit bows, as well as when venerating the Holy Icons, Cross, et cetera.
On Wednesdays and Fridays when venerating icons, as they are fast days, and also during the other fasts of the year on any day but Sunday.
During the week and on Saturday during the Divine Liturgy, we are supposed to do a full prostration during the epiclesis.
Are there any other points during a weekday Divine Liturgy that we are supposed to do a full prostration?
What about during matins or vespers, such as the "More honorable..." hymn to the Mother of God, or at other such times?
