HOLY LITURGY - a unique celebration - by Claudia Henzler copyright and Infos: Claudia.Henzler(at) From March 4-6, 2009 altogether 19 Bishops from various countries have visited the ITI (International Theological Institute) in Gaming, Austria. 150 Attendees listened attentively while the Bishops of the Eastern Catholic Churches did discuss on the Symposium The Mission of the Eastern Catholic Churches in the Life of the Universal Church and for the Modern World. The Consensus was, that the Eastern Catholic Churches are aware of their role as bridge builders helping to connect Orthodox Christians with Roman Catholics through Dialogue and a deeper understandig. This certainly is a continuous challenge as the Eastern Catholic Churches are often seen by their Orthodox brothers as betrayers and by Roman Catholics as strangely different. The Eastern Catholic Churches do acknowledge the Pope of Rome as the head of their Church, at the same time they cherish their Orthodox traditions, which manifests especially in the colorful Byzantine Liturgy, the Jesus Prayer (Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me) and many other details like accepting married priests etc. One Bishop said on the Symposium at the ITI in Gaming: it is good to know the differences between the Churches. But isnt it the most essential to follow the footseps of Christ, seeking to life according to the Gospel? What testimony can be greater than LOVE? If we learn to love each other and learn to love even our enemies, then Jesus Christ will ...
The Liturgical Year A short explanation and overview of the liturgical year, in the context of the Roman Catholic tradition. This is the result of a long, and in my opinion enjoyable :) discussion with my fiance on the liturgy, and of the observance of special days of the liturgical year with specific worship services.

Not all the images shown in this set of videos are of Mass; they are also of other liturgical rites and ceremonies of the Church (blessings, processions et al) - some of them "fabricated" as 'para-liturgies'.

Miserachs: Sacred Music come back to Church liturgy These are the roots of western music. The organ, chants and choirs give sacred scriptures the harmony that touches peoples spirituality. Its no mystery scared music has yet to go out of fashion, even in todays world. Josep Solé Polyphnoy Student Theres a need for reliving the spirit of the past, thats why we bring back Gregorian chants, polyphony, play the organ and sing in Latin. 45.06 Maria Luisa Venezieano Polyphony student This is wonderful because it would be a sin if this music were lost. Not only is sacred music making a come back in Church liturgy, but its also topping charts and selling records all over the world. Maria Luisa Venezieano Polyphony student Like many other things, I believe that sacred music is a good way to approach eternity as close as possible. 8.30 Students from all over the world flock to the Pontifical Institute for Sacred Music in Rome to sing under the direction of the Institutes president, Monsignor Valentín Miserachs who also teaches this polyphony class. Mons. Valentín Miserachs Grau President, Pontifical Institute for Sacred Music The first thing I do is put them in direct contact with the scriptures so that they can understand the meaning and the feeling that comes from each text. Today the class is learning a piece called Magnificat, composed by Mons. Miserach himself for a liturgy on the Virgin Mary. And with a bit of discipline. The large class bursts into perfect harmony. Hector Manuel Salcedo Becerra Polyphony student Oh yes ...
legalized liturgical abuse The intro to this video shows a maniple and a chalice veil, and explains what they are, what they mean and where they came from. This video is about the further developments within the New Rite of mass. It explains how they have their origin in some ambiguous statements in Sacrosanctum Concilium. www.vatican.va In paragraph 23 it states : "Finally, there must be no innovations unless the good of the Church genuinely and certainly requires them; and care must be taken that any new forms adopted should in some way grow organically from forms already existing." There were no clarifications as to what constitutes a genuine and certain requirement. Many liturgical abuses have become legalized by a liberal interpretation of this citation. Some changes that were obviously not genuine and certain requirements that did make it into the liturgy: Removal of traditional vestments, fiddlebacks, maniple, amice etc... Removal of the two confiteors which create a distinction between the priest and the people. Removal/making optional of every of every sign of reverence given to the Eucharist. Removal Traditional Sacrificial Offertory prayers in favor of a Jewish prayer of a blessing of a meal. Removal of the Last Gospel. Changing the centrality of the liturgy from the Eucharist to the, next most sacred thing, human life and the community. etc.... Liturgical Abuses Legalized or made concessions for thus far: Mass entirely or almost entirely in the vernacular. Communion in the Hand ...

The Divine Liturgy | Jesus Feeds the Multitudes Why did Jesus, after asking the disciples to assemble and feed the multitudes, then ask them to leave while He dismissed the crowds Himself? A video to remind us to experience Jesus Himself in the meal of the Divine Liturgy. Sung in Arabic and Greek. Note the Psalm passage has different structure in various translations. This one and others are consistent with the voiceless and veiled Presence of Christ in the Liturgy, "a tent for the sun". A teaching of apostolic Christianity in any case. Please pray for the Middle East. For more information about the Hamatoura Monastery: Altar is at the ancient Byzantine site of the multiplication of the loaves, in Tabgha, Galilee, Israel. Ancient Byzantine Chants from The Divine Liturgy of the Holy Eastern Orthodox Church of Antioch are also available in English. For the first time by the world-renowned Mount Lebanon Choir. Included with the CD is a PDF file with the Byzantine notation of the hymns of the Divine Liturgy of St. Chrysostom. Available at Excellent references on the Psaltic Arts: www.***
Gem of Classical Jewish Liturgy The ode Yedid Nefesh (Soul Friend) by Kabbalist Rabbi Elazar Azkari is deeply endeared by Jews around the world. A wide variety of melodies are used for its performance. In the Israeli National Sound Archives I came across an unfamiliar performance of Yedid Nefesh by an unknown youth vocal group named Lahakat HaUzim adapting the ode to a charming melody. In the present performance of Yedid Nefesh, my vocal contribution is attached to the original singing of the youth vocal group.

The Eucharist in Aramaic (Maronite Liturgy) The Eucharist in the Maronite mass is always chanted in Aramaic, regardless of what the mass language is (Aramaic, Arabic, French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.). Below is the English translation: On the day before his life-giving passion, Jesus took bread in his holy hands. He blessed, sanctified, broke, and gave it to his disciples saying: Take and eat it, all of you: This is my body which is broken and delivered for you and for many, for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Amen Likewise he blessed the cup of wine mixed with water, sanctified, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take and drink from it, all of you: This is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed and handed over for you and for many, for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Amen
Blagoslovi Dushe Moya Gospoda (Liturgy). Rakhmaninov This is from the opus 31 setting of the Liturgy by Sergei Rakhmaninov. This video is dedicated to the New Russian Martyrs. The image sequence begins with the trial of St Veniamin of Petrograd, then, icons of the martyrs follow, with individual and corporate icons alternating. This is to show that the martyrdom of the New Russian Confessors was both a personal and united podvig (act of courage). To close the sequence of the martyrs, I chose the icon of the Finding of the Relics of Patriarch St Tikhon. This is a thematic bridge between the past events and the present day. The final image is the Mother of God Stand for Christ with the Martyr's Cross. That needs no commentary. The blood of the New Martyrs is the seedbed of the current revival in Russia. This is my tribute to them.

Antiphon for the Byzantine Divine Liturgy Another clip from Easter Byzantine chant sung in Arabic and Greek. Chanted by: Father Sleiman Hajjar and Reader Nader Hajjar. A side comment: Please pray to God that He will foil the plans of those pushing us so hard to war. War is about self defense only. Anything else is from the evil one. There is no such thing as pre-emptive war. This is our teaching. It is the natural law and it is common sense. Note. This recording was stolen by DeusVult777 and used in their channel that promotes endless war. Since there is no just principle operating in our present day to justify conflict, this type of behavior is common. The use of religion to flame war. Opt out of the globalist's endless "war on terror". My hope is the Father; My refuge, the Son; My protection, the Holy Spirit. Holy Trinity, glory to You A Melkite view on unity:
