Form of absolution in the Assyrian Church of the East
« on: June 09, 2011, 07:11:08 PM »
Wikipedia said it's "deprecatory" rather than "indicative." I'm lost on the meaning of that, so does anyone know where I can find the form of absolution in ACOE so I can figure out for myself what is meant?

Let us who mystically represent the cherubim and sing the thrice-holy hymn unto the life-giving Trinity now lay aside all earthly care. Amen. That we may receive the King of All escorted invisibly by angelic hosts. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.

I don't think anyone who posts here currently belongs to the Church of the East.  You may want to pm Rafa and see if he is able to help you:

All Eastern Churches use deprecatory forumlas: "The servant of God is baptized in the name of..." rather than "I baptize you in the name of ...";  "May God forgive your sins" rather than "I forgive your sins..." etc.

I see. That's all I really needed to know, and the only reason I sought out the ACOE formula was because I thought this was some odd thing only they used.

I was under the impression the Slavic tradition of Orthodoxy had adopted, essentially, the Roman form of absolution.  Is this incorrect (I would be very pleased if so)?
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?
