Christ Has Risen from the Dead!

Christ has risen from the dead!

Christ has risen from the dead...

By His death, He conquered death...

And to those in the grave He bestowed life!

Roman Rite Consecration Prayer

Take and eat this (HOC)   for this is my Body...

Take and drink from this chalice. 

(From hic and thus from HOC my broken Body)

In hic is my salutary Blood of the new and eternal testament (covenant)...the chalice of my Blood, which is shed for you and for many unto the forgiveness of sin.  (Fr. Stedman Sunday Missal Explained, p. 52)

Prayer of St. John Chrysostom

I believe, O Lord, and I confess, that Thou art truly the Christ, the Son of the living God, who didst come into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.  

And I believe that this (HOC) is truly thine own immaculate Body, and that this (HOC) is truly thine own precious Blood.

Wherefore, I pray thee, have mercy upon me and forgive my transgressions, both voluntary and involuntary, of word and of deed, of knowledge and of ignorance; and make me worthy to partake  without condemnation of thine immaculate Mysteries unto remission of my sins and unto life everlasting. Amen.

Of thy Mystical Supper, O Son of God, accept me today as a communicant: for I will not speak of thy mysteries enemies, neither will I give thee a kiss as did Judas; but, like the thief will I confess thee: Remember me, O Lord, in thy Kingdom.

Not unto judgment nor unto condemnation, by my partaking of thy Holy Mysteries, O lord, but unto the healing of soul and body. --Orthodox Communion Prayer, St. John Chrysostom

Are the Orthodox Schismatics?

Here is where I had to cease thinking as a child and to think as an adult. (1 Cor 13:11) Properly educated and currently informed observers of history now realize that the schism between the Eastern and the Western Churches was political, not religious. Going more deeply, one must ask: “Which Patriarchate abandoned the fundamentals of Orthodox Catholic Faith?  Obviously, the Western!
