Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarchal Divine Liturgy in St Paul outside the Walls,, Rome

Monday, May 30, 2011

Notice that they celebrated in one of the Four Major Basilicas in Rome, and it is in 2008, the year of St. Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles, for the Melkite Pilgrimage and the Patriarch of Antioch and of all east, of Alexandria and Jerusalem of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church Gregorios III Laham

Because the Church has no Iconostasis, it is required that there should be a Icon of the Christo Pantocrator and the Theotokos and plus the Patron Saints icon, if there are any, and it is also applicable for other Eastern Catholic Churches under the Byzantine Rite, though it is likely the most required are the Icons of Christo Pantocrator and the Most Holy Theotokos.

It is the Preparation Prayers of the Divine Liturgy thats is being documented in the Video and notice the beginning at the benediction of one Hierarch using a Gospel Book to make the Sign of the Cross.
