if you're in Charlotte...

... Divine Liturgy this evening @ St. Basil the Great Byzantine Catholic Church, Saturday vigil at 5pm.


Let my prayer rise, like incense before thee...

ECs do anticipatory Liturgies? With Matins before?

I'll have to attend Liturgy sometime. There's a little Byzantine church in Cary I visited a few years ago.

Is this the church that uses non-scented incense for the allergy bound?

My parish uses non-smoking incense -the pastor puts the grains in the thurible but refuses to light it so as not to offend those with allergies. He says G-d knows his intentions and that good enough.

Maybe he could be the fourth stooge?

Carolina Cannonball said...

Marco. No, allergies be damned.

Kat, Do you have a Southern accent? Do the Orthodox priests have a Southern accent? Do you drink mint julips - or whatever they are called? Just how Southern are you?

Just curious.

My priest (Orthodox) is from Texas, with a drawl so thick you can cut it with a knife.

Then, there's Father Honeycutt:

rightwingprof--some Eastern Catholic parishes do anticipated Liturgies. The Ruthenian parish I used to go to had one. They did Vespers beforehand, though, rather than Matins.

Vespers before makes sense, while Matins would not.

We have Great Vespers on Saturday evenings, with confessions after. No anticipated liturgies.

(You know, I should know this. There are lots of Byzantines around here, after all.)
