I went to the Vespers, wow is it different from Vespers in the catholic church.
There was an old lady there at the church, she was talking to me in Greek, so I did not understand every word she said, but we managed a conversation all the same, When I told her it was my first Orthodox service she hugged me tight and kept saying πολύ καλά, in the end she left and the priest came out and came up to me shook my hand and said καλησπέρα with a big grin on his face.
Then the service started, I just sat back and listened as I did not understand a lot of what was being said or why they was doing things they did.
But I really enjoyed the service, the style really reminded me of the old church, I still think this is the way it should be.
I was told there is Vespers tomorrow night for John the Baptist, unfortunately I have a mass of obligation at the same time, so I will probably go on Saturday in stead.
The priest gave me a wrapped up book as a present, it is "The Orthodox Church new edition by Timothy Ware (Bishop Kallistos)" They mustn't of had the Orthodox way, but Very kind of him.
I shall read this with great interest.
