Latin
« on: September 01, 2013, 02:58:44 PM »
Does any of the WR parishes or monasteries celebrate services in Latin or include some Latin in their services?
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

Yes.
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

Well that was informative. :P Is there any pattern for use of Latin or is it up to priest? Does bishops restrict use of non-vernacular language?

I don't know if this is related, but I read 2 Esdras in Latin today...  :angel:

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.

The Antiochian rite of St. Gregory is mostly in traditional English, but it also uses Latin (for the dismissal), Hebrew (Amen), and Greek (Kyrie eleison and the Good Friday reproaches).

No pattern that I know of.  No restriction that I know of either.

Christminster uses a little Latin now and again as well I think, but from what I remember visiting there it's not a significant proportion of the services, the bulk of which are in English.
