Romanian Liturgy
« on: August 09, 2011, 12:16:45 AM »
I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I have to chant Divine Liturgy Wednesday morning at a Romanian parish I've never attended--thankfully there will only be a few other close friends there. I've never been to Liturgy at a Romanian parish before. I will only have a few minutes with the priest before Liturgy so I wanted to find out before I get there.

1. Do Romanians follow the Greek or Russian practice re the Antiphons vs. Typica?

2. Do Romanians sing "Let our mouths be filled..." after Communion?

3. Do Romanians read more than one Epistle (Russian/Monastic practice)?

Forgive me if this is covered somewhere--I did a search and couldn't find it.

Thank you!

It depends on the Romanian parish. A Romanian once compared the Romanians to the Antiochians, they mainly follow the Greek practice but sometimes something Russian slips in. All of these questions are ones that only the priest will be answer for sure.

My best guess is 1. Antiphons 2. yes 3. No

Do you meant reading second perycope on feasts dedicated to that feast.?

Just like the Carpatho Russians....Greek influence with a bit of Russian here and there.

You'd better ask the priest, but from what it is done in the parishes in Romania:
1) Antiphons (although sometimes Typica)
2) It is usually read
3) Usually yes (if you mean what Michał said) - depends on the parish

Asemănându-te obiceiurilor râvnitorului Ilie şi urmând Botezătorului pe drepte cărări, Părinte Antonie, te-ai făcut locuitor pustiului şi ai întărit lumea cu rugăciunile tale. Pentru aceasta, roagă-te lui Hristos Dumnezeu, să mântuiască sufletele noastre.
