Video Commentary of the Holy Liturgy
« on: November 01, 2005, 08:30:48 PM »
I just discovered that there was an online video series of Fr. Athanasius Iskander commentating on the Holy Divine Liturgy, during what seems to be a mock enactment of it, and I thought I would share it here:

Indeed it is; and Fr. Athanasius Iskanders' english is quite good by the way.

Fr. Athanasius is a family/friend of ours. He is devoted and intelligent priest. Please pray for him as he recently had open heart surgery when he fell and got a heart attack couple of months ago. He is getting much better thank God. I ocassionally email him about various issues particualrly asking him in his superb advice about the "Abomination of Desolation"...the title of a book which he was written on the same subject.

Oh wow!  I never knew he had a heart attack.  He didn't even mention it to me.  Maybe it was before I started to email him.  I am glad to hear he is doing better.
