The Divine Liturgy, Part 2: The Proskomide
July 28, 2006 Length: 1:00:24
The Proskomide, or the leavened bread that is offered to God, and the accompanying Proskomide prayers, form the essential first part of the Divine Liturgy, taking place well before the arrival of the parishoners to the scheduled service. In this program we attempt to convey some of the significance of the Proskomide and the preparation required for its use. In the Proskomide, the whole of the Kingdom of God - those on earth and in heaven - is commemorated; the Incarnate Lord, the One Sacrifice, the One Bread, the One Body of Christ.
"You cannot know how important AFR has been to me! It amounts to a spiritual lifeline. I am not in a position to move to the Orthodox Church due to my current church situation. I could not imagine life without the help and guidance of Orthodoxy. It puts my lifelong Evangelical teaching into a context that finally makes sense to me. Thank you for your ministry and for being there!"
