CHRONICLE – MAY 18th, THURSDAY


Today, on May 18th (Thursday), at 10 o'clock, in the “Saint Maximus, Bishop of Turin” church, was the beginning of the first Devine service of the liturgical series, dedicated to the Saint brothers Cyril and Methodius.



 

It was held by Abbot Ambrose (Kassinasko) in concelebration with Father Victor (Matveev) and with the participation of the “Bulgarian Collegium HOSANNA” which for the first time sang the Holy St. John Chrysostom Liturgy in Italian by the original music of the Bulgarian composer Georgi Popov.
 


The merging of the Italian text with the melody and harmony of the liturgy chants impressed the clergy, the worshipers and the guests of the festivities. The choir sang with inspiration and between them and the priests there was the sensation of a strong spiritual and emotional connection in the liturgical space, which contributed to the elevated repentant and at the same time festive mood of those, present in the church.
 

 

After the service, Father Ambrose shared with all present: "To hear a liturgy, entirely sung in Italian language from a choir where some of the singers do not even speak Italian, is an example of what Orthodoxy should be in Italy. Many choirs from our Orthodox community cannot do what this choir achieved today. This is a small but extremely important example - when there is faith, when there is love and goodwill, everything is possible.
 

 

The two brothers, Cyril and Methodius, leave the new Rome to go all around of Eastern Europe (we call it Eastern, but in fact some parts of this Eastern Europe are further west of us), learn the languages of the native people and bring them the Gospel, bring them the liturgy as well as all the knowledge of the Church. So, in honor of the Saints Cyril and Methodius, who had truly given this light to so many European nations, we have now also gathered together in harmony and gratitude, and in anticipation of the other liturgies of this series ... "
