Today He Who Hung the Earth on the Waters is Hung on the Tree

For those celebrating Holy Thursday on the Gregorian Calendar. If you listen to it, you’ll know why I feel compelled to post it every year.

Opus Publicum

The late Archbishop Job of the Diocese of the Midwest (Orthodox Church in America) chanting his haunting setting of the 15th Antiphon of Holy Friday Matins in 2009. That Holy Week would prove to be the good bishop’s last here on earth as God called him home in December. Of all of the priests and bishops I met during my time in Eastern Orthodoxy, he was one of the most kind, sincere, and dedicated to his calling. On this most holy and sorrowful day I pray for his soul and hope in turn that he will pray for mine.

  1. At the local Roman Catholic parish in the small town that I live in, the main event on this Easter morning was a bunch of little girls and boys dressed in angel-wings dancing up and down the aisles to rap music, with the whole congregation clapping along. It was so appreciated that the congregation began to yell for an encore. Which was done.

    Although I have been told that the liturgy is improving in the Roman Catholic church, I simply do not see it happening. If liturgy represent the faith, what do children dancing to rap during the offertory mean theologically?
