The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

We had a truly inspiring turnout this morning at the Mission.  We actually filled the chapel.

Fr. Benedict was kind enough to allow me to photograph the paten and the prosphora at several different stages of the Proskomide.  I will be posting those photographs tomorrow, with a partial explanation.

It was quite gratifying to have so many people helping the choir.  The sound filled the room, and even overpowered what my grandmother would have referred to as "the whole zoo."  That's actually a Russian idiom.  Out of thirty-one people, we had eleven children.

No comment, other than to say that the child I think of as Chewbacca (because of his enormous lung capacity and voice) actually told another kid to be quiet during the reading of the Gospel.  It was really quite amazing and touching.
