    Are Contrarians autocephalous? If not what patriarch are they under? Are you guys in communion with Chalcedonian churches?

    Mac, I'm contrarian every day. Sometimes to the point to where I get on my own nerves.

    I only was able to attend one of the bridegroom services, the one tonight. Were the other two much different? Perhaps you can give me a brief recap...?

    They have different topics. If you want to read the text, go to ematins.org and go the holy week services :) his translation is really great.

    Yeah, the texts are different. They're all pretty great, but the theme for each night changes. The outline of the service, of course, is the same. It's matins with a three-ode canon and a gospel reading.

    An hour? Ish?

    They're worth going to at least once, but are mostly 'reader' services (i.e. a lot of solitary chanting). I go when I can, but of all the Holy Week services that's the first one to go if I HAVE to miss one.

    Now... the OTHER two Friday services are must-go services. The Vespers on Friday mid-day, and ESPECIALLY the Friday evening (called "Holy Saturday Matins") is a must must must. The lamentations before the tomb of Christ contain some of the most beautiful theology... the symbolism of the procession under the tomb... Absolutely fantastic.

    Agreed. I rarely go to the Royal Hours, but I never miss the Unailing/Apokathelosis, or the Lamentations.

    Lamentations ranks second only to Pascha in utter coolness!
