So, as I live in, and am being catechized in Russia, obviously every service i attend is in Slavonic. For Russians who are educated/experienced/attentive, like my wife, they seem to be able to make out the meanings of most of it. I, on the other hand, speaking Russian only as a seond language, find Slavonic to be utterly mystifying, save Господи Помилуй, Отцу и Сыну и Святому Духу, мир, века, and a few other key/obvious phrases.
I have read the Liturgy in English, and also, my priest was kind enough to find me a pamphlet that hasthe Slavonic and English side by side, which I was very excited about. Trouble is, the Slavonic text is also written in the Old Slavonic alphabet, not in the Russian alphabet, which I can feel my way through, but only at a very slow and concentrated pace, certainly not quickly enough to follow the service.
My question is: does anyone know of any online links/order-able books (though the mail can be iffy here) that would have the liturgy written in Slavonic, but in the modern Russian alphabet, side by side with either English or Modern Russian?
uses the modern Russian alphabet.
