Video of Beautiful Liturgy in Abkhazia
« on: October 04, 2011, 06:16:37 PM »
This is to offset all of the trite nonsense that seems to be happening lately on the board. I think that this video beautifully demonstrates our faith and worship:

That is really beautiful. Is that liturgy in Abkhaz? It just doesn't sound Slavic to me at all. Probably one of the nicest sounding languages that I've heard though.

Now it sounds clearly Slavic. Are they switching?

I am a bit confused. Is this church a part of the georgian patriarchate or is it the abkhazian orthodox church?

No matter what, it sounds beautiful  :)

Is it in our faith that there can be Church without a Bishop? I don't think so.

great video! love the chant.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

I just saw this on my faceball wallpost a couple of days ago posted by someone who goes to my parish. Alveous by looking at your where your jurisdiction is, Iam guessing you are him? Do you go to St.Mary's?

I guess you didn't get the memo. This thread was supposed to be positive.

Absolutely beautiful! A friend sent this to me the other day, and we were trying to figure out if it's part of the Georgian Orthodox Church or the bishopless Abkhazian Orthodox Church. Does anyone know?

Regardless, absolutely beautiful!

Abchasia doesn't allow Orthodox Priests to serve (just like Macedonia).

That's not completely true. MP priests are allowed to serve. What is true though, is that all priests from the Georgian patriarchate ave been expelled and are denied entry.

As for Macedonia, the canonical church under Serbia is still denied registration, but there is no ban on celebrating the liturgy.

Only they are sometimes visited by the police officers...

Jesus said that he would found a bunch of national churches, and that the Gates of Hades would not prevail against them.
