“Opening the Royal Gates: Divine Service in the Christian and Judaic Traditions”, by Fr. Alexandre Winogradsky Frenkel


You will soon be able to watch online the new 2018-2019 cycle of the Hebraic Tradition Tuesdays, led by Archpriest Alexandre Winogradsky Frenkel (Romanian Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem) on the theme: “Opening the Royal Gates: Divine Service in the Christian and Judaic Traditions”.

It will be a presentation of the divine service and pastoral responsibility, of formation in parishes, dioceses/eparchies, and metropolises. It will study what it means to be called to baptism – unfolding in all the Mysteries (or Sacraments) of Christ and leading to the particular service of the altar. Young people are encouraged to be acolytes. Other steps can be made after being called by a local Church.

Some choose the Orders (Reader, subdiaconate, then the diaconate in Christ, the presbyterate, in the married life or in the monastic state).

These steps can take years and are part of a prophetic dimension. Eastern Christian traditions developed over long centuries of intelligence of the faith, of the Divine and Eucharistic Presence. They are also based on the foundations proposed by various Jewish traditions, in contrasting landscapes that explain the meaning of the singular call addressed to humans. The women vocation of service is obviously also part of this cycle of conferences.
