New Books! — Pascha

by peterngardner

Two new books are done, just barely in time, containing the complete service texts for all the Paschal services, from Midnight Office through Vespers, omitting only the Divine Liturgy after the Gospel (as that part of the Liturgy is essentially the same as any other Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom). English and Slavonic texts are given, usually in parallel columns, and both, as far as I could manage it, match the common usage of the ROCOR Eastern American Diocese in general, and of St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral in particular. In addition, the Paschal Homily of St. John Chrysostom is provided in Russian.

One of the two books is the hardcover 8.5″x11″ version, suitable for use on Pascha as a substitute for the archieraticon for a bishop, or by the presiding priest —

The other is exactly the same book, but in a smaller 6″x9″ spiral-bound format, suitable for use by a priest or deacon during the service —

Orders placed by the Thursday of the Great Canon (more or less) should hopefully arrive by the middle of Holy Week.
