Is it true that Orthodox only say the Liturgy of the Presanctifiied during St.Philip's Fast, as Dom Gueranger tells us? See here

The link does not work so I can't see to what you are referring.

But, no.  The Liturgy of the Presanctified is not used during the advent season.

I found the page that I think you were trying to link to. It actually doesn't say that the Orthodox serve the Liturgy of the Presanctified during the Nativity Fast (which we don't), but rather:

Quote
They have no proper Office for Advent, neither do they celebrate during this time the Mass of the Presanctified, as they do in Lent.

Which basically means that we don't have special services for the Fast per se, nor do we have any special liturgies.

we do however in the Greek Tradition serve the sarantalitourgo for the 40 days of the nativity fast. which is a full liturgy with consecration.

Yes, in our parish we are having vigils almost every night until the Nativity Smiley. It wasn't possible before due to the limit (unless I'm mistaken) of one Divine Liturgy per day in the church, but we now have a small chapel in the building behind the church which has allowed us a lot more freedom (dedicated to Saint Silouan)

Vigil is not Liturgy - vigil is composed of vespers, mattins and first hour.

Perhaps vigil is the wrong term then. In Greek it is "agripnia" and it includes the divine liturgy.

Wow. Your Greek Orthodox churches must be very active places. That's refreshing to see.  Here, unfortunately, Greek Orthodoxy is mainly a Sunday morning only religion. Kind of sad, really.

I happen to live in Greece, so things are perhaps a little different here than in the diaspora Smiley. Plus Thessaloniki has always had a reputation for prayer. Throw a rock in any direction and you are bound to hit a church Cheesy

I eagerly look forward to being able to see your parish next year, John!  It must be so nice to live in an Orthodox country...
