Fr. Antonious Tanious- Palm Sunday Gregorian Liturgy

edited December 1969 in Hymns Discussion
Ok, so in the Gregorian Liturgy, first the Priest says Je Nai Nan then the congregation follows. Well I just saw this public video on facebook where Fr. Antonious's church says "Hosanna, King of Israel, Save us". Is this right?? I thought it was always "Have mercy upon us O God the Father, the pantocrator" on any occasion.

  • I'm not sure if this is part of the rite of Palm sunday but my priest does the same thing.

    i say that to. it's not as a rite it's a part that many priests used to do. the closest person i know who does that is Abouna David Bebawy in George's and before him Fr. Antonius Ragheb.
  • Does any one has a source for that?
  • I doubt it....i don't think its actually recorded as a rite. Some priests just do it because of the feast.

    i have to agree with this to. same to [coptic]Je Nai nan[/coptic], with the Trinity included...not as the written source say that there are 2 versions....[coptic]`o Cwtyr nem piPantokratwr.[/coptic]
  • Even though it is not a rite does not necessarily mean it is unacceptable, in my opinion. Prayer does not have to have a certain order for it to be considered prayer. However, i am not advocating people or priests to say whatever they want and get rid of the liturgies we have today - that would be a disaster. On the contrary; i just don't like how we can only accept prayer if it is written beforehand by someone else. Only in some cases, i do not find it to be a big deal.

    Btw, the guy at the very end of the video (the deacon who is starring) is hilarious!

    I actually don't think they are black, just REALLY dark red.

    not that DARK.....like i can see the other red ones...
  • They're red. Made of a type of velvet that is very dark. But be assured they're red.
  • I Love Abouna Antonious with all my heart you can really feel his spirit in Liturgy.
  • does any one has a public link for this vedeo?
