Canon for Racial Reconciliation
« on: July 08, 2016, 12:17:39 AM »
Quote
Glory to God for all the flowers in His garden

Tone 2

Ode I

Irmos: In the deep of old, the infinite power overwhelmed Pharaoh’s whole army, but the incarnate Word annihilated pernicious sin, exceedingly glorious is the Lord, for gloriously hath He been glorified.

Because “the Stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner”, the disparate races are conjoined again. (Ps 118:22).  Even as Christ commanded us to love the Lord thy God “with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength”, so He also called us to “love thy neighbor as thyself” (Mark 12:30), (Mark 12:31).  The sum of humanity’s reconciliation to God is voiced in one acclamation. Theotokos.  She who bears God.

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Something is not right here. Are there any parallel precedents? Are we to make Canons for all good things which just happen to occur to us?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

No.  I haven't come across a Canon for Finding Money in the Dryer.

Ode 1

Irmos
After spreading his arms like a cross, Moses led Israel across the sea as on dry land to return to what was once promised to them. Let us, again, call upon our God.

Upon encountering that precious vessel wherein our raiment is dried again and made anew, remember the Lord and His words: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." Recalling this His promise, draw near with no small fear and faith, spurning the man that buried his talent, and seek out your own, that it may be multiplied.

You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

"This is the one from the beginning, who seemed to be new, yet was found to be ancient and always young, being born in the hearts of the saints."
Letter to Diognetus 11.4

I hope there is mention of Christ's parable of the missing coin.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

We need reconcilliation.  The world is falling apart before our very eyes.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

So, I guess we need written permission to pray this canon.  :o

On a serious note, however . . . How does one use a canon? I know we have canons at various services, but for things like this, do you need a service in the church? Do people pray these on their own? Could a group of lay-people get together and pray a canon?
(I realize there are probably no regulations on prayer. I'm more asking what is normative.)
I have always found the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom to be so much more moving in the original Ukrainian.

Very good.   You are truly a brilliant musical and poetoc mind.
