Does anybody know where I can find (preferably online) something that explains why different things are done and what they mean during the course of the Divine Liturgy? Sort of a play-by-play explaination so to speak is what I am looking for. The reason that I ask is that while I love the Divine Liturgy, my wife and I don't really understand what everything means and why certain things are done. Keep in mind that we are from a low-church evangelical background, so some of the terms
the Orthodox use (especially if they are Greek or Russian words) are puzzling to us.
I suppose it would be the same for a Catholic or Orthodox if they attended an evangelical church where all the lingo is in "evangelese"
so to speak. Anyway, any suggestions would be helpful.
