Christmas Eve


And festal Liturgy in the church of st. Sava in Belgrade.  I practically was crying while watching it via Internet. It was so beautiful, and these words: children of st. Sava dispersed, willing or unwillingly, throughout world (...) With our paternal care, we call on you not to forget your Orthodox Faith and your language

It was quite a blessing to have my wife and my three sons with me for this service.  The young gentleman holding the cross is Vamrat of this forum.  The second person from the right in the middle photo is my middle son, and my wife and youngest son are in the bottom photo.  I am holding the banner so that my middle son could take the photograph.

Sorry to say, but I do not speak a word of Serbian, so I can pretty much tell you that I have never sung that carol. However, I am sure that I have heard it sung.  I converted from the Lutheran Church around 19 years ago and never really got into a lot of the ethnic stuff like languages.  I use a lot of Western Rite materiel for my private devotions because it is hard to find Orthodox prayer books that are written in the English that I learned in my younger days.  I understand enough Church Slavonic to get through the service, provided that they stick to the book.  I don't even pretend to know Greek or Arabic, and Byzantine Chant offends my ears. 

First Vamrat has to admit that knows me before he will admit to being in a photograph with me  laugh

I see... So does your parish not use Serbian in the services? It would be a bit surprsing for me. But it's sorry to me that Byzantine Chant offends your ears Sad But maybe you accept Serbian variant of it (mainly works of Mokranjac)?



Nativity service I've attended.

Haha there is my priest in the foreground (I know that as always he has visited Podlachia for the Christmas celebrated by Old Style). But why do they wear green vestments?

I always thought that green is prescribed for Palm Sunday and Pentecost. For Nativity, depending on tradition, it's white, gold or red (can be blue for the second day of the feast). I'm just surprised, beecasue in Poland the colour of vestements is more observed than in some other countries.

BTW, what a stupid grammar error made by me

Or services are in English and Church Slavonic, about 50/50.  The Gospel is read in English, Serbian and Slavonic.  That is pretty much the only Serbian used in the Liturgy.  Our priest is from Serbia, but prefers to use Slavonic.  We have a large number of Russians in our parish, so that works out very well.

It was a joke.  No insult intended.

The funny thing is that the words are gibberish, but the 'accent' is correct.  With ESL speakers, very often its the opposite way around...

No need to worry, of course I knew it was joke, but I wonder how they managed to "talk" without any sense, but with proper accent and that I've heard some normal phrases like "I mean"
