St. Hripsimeh pray for us!


« on: July 14, 2013, 01:09:35 AM »

There is a woman at my church who reads Russian better than she reads either Armenian or English.  She wants to learn about Holy Communion, and when I gave her a small book in Armenian about the seven sacraments, she later said it was too hard for her to read.

I need something simple in Russian that explains Holy Communion.

Is there something on this page that does that?

http://www.fatheralexander.org/page9.htm

If there is nothing there specifically about Communion, is there at least something on that page that goes through the seven sacraments and which would at least touch on Communion?

Is there any other source in Russian I can get a hold of over the internet?

Thanks.

I'm just about to go to bed, but just quickly

They are on the Holy Mysteries.  Oddly enough, there are things on Baptism, Chrismation, Confession and Marriage but on Communion only, just in the above two  pamphlets on the seven.

This is on Divine Liturgy:

On Communion itself:

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

The events of a century ago led to many Armenians fleeing to other countries, including Russia, or regions where Russian was the dominant language.

Thanks. That's what I assumed but my brains seem to be unable to comprehend idea. A downside of being born into a monoethnic country.

The woman speaks fluent Armenian, but doesn't read it well.  Her education was in Russian.  This is not uncommon among Armenians who are born in countries in the diaspora.  My mom's first language was Armenian, but she doesn't read it at all.  She only reads English.  In my church's bookstore, we have Bibles not only in English and Armenian, but also Russian and Arabic.

Not just Armenians.  Many Indians born in the US can speak our "mother tongue", but can't read or write.  And then there are weirdos like me who can read and write just fine, but can't speak a grammatically correct sentence to save their lives.  Tongue

I don't know how true it is now, but I have heard people say that even in Armenia it was quite common for people to know Russian better than Armenian, not just in the diaspora.

No problem, except I did not have the opportunity to see if they touch on the azymite issue at all (usually, it doesn't come up nowadays).
