Fotoreportajul din săptămâna aceasta prezintă Sf. Liturghie a Sf. Iacob, fratele (ruda) Domnului, cea mai veche slujbă Euharistică din Biserică.

Cel mai impresionant lucru în Liturghia Sf. Iacob este faptul că are loc în mijlocul bisericii, exact sub ochii noştri, lucru ce ne conferă o trăire mult mai intensă a tainei.

Preoţii sunt aproape înconjuraţi de mulţime, făcând din toată comunitatea un singur trup tainic ce se roagă pentru mântuirea sa, căutând unirea cu Dumnezeu.

Cu toate aceastea, această Liturghie este slujită în mod normal doar de sărbătoarea Sf. Iacob. Şi cred că unul din principalele motive pentru aceasta este faptul că astăzi nu mai avem starea duhovnicească corespuzătoare astfel încât să fim una în mijlocul bisericii. Trebuie să avem conştiinţa slăbiciunii noastre.

Το φωτορεπορτάζ (25 φωτογραφίες) αυτής της εβδομάδας είναι αφιερωμένο στην Θεία Λειτουργία του αγίου Ιακώβου του Αδελφοθέου, στην παλαιότερη Θεία Λειτουργία της Εκκλησίας.

Το πιο εντυπωσιακό πράγμα στην Θεία Λειτουργία του αγίου Ιακώβου είναι ότι τελείται στο κέντρο του ιερού ναού, μπροστά στα μάτια μας. Αυτό μάς δίνει μια πολύ πιο έντονη αίσθηση του μυστηρίου….

Οι ιερείς σχεδόν περιβάλλονται από το πλήθος των προσκυνητών, σχηματίζοντας έτσι, ολόκληρη η κοινότητα ένα σώμα, που προσεύχεται για την σωτηρία τους, επιδιώκοντας την ενότητα μεταξύ αυτών και του Θεού.

Ωστόσο, αυτή η Λειτουργία τελείται συνήθως μόνο την ημέρα της εορτής του αγίου Ιακώβου. Και νομίζω ότι ένας από τους κύριους λόγους για αυτό, είναι ότι σήμερα δεν έχουμε πια το απαιτούμενο πνευματικό επίπεδο, ώστε να είμαστε “ένα” στη μέση της εκκλησίας. Για να γίνει αυτό, πρέπει να έχουμε κυρίως επίγνωση ​​της αδυναμίας μας.

The photo report from this week depicts the Divine Liturgy of St. James, the brother (cousin) of the Lord, the oldest Eucharistic service in the Church.

The most impressive thing in the St. James’s Liturgy is that it happens in the middle of the church, right before our eyes which gives us a much more intense feeling of the mystery.

The priests are nearly surrounded by crowd,  forming thus, the whole community, one body, praying for their salvation, seeking the unity between them and God.

However, this Liturgy is celebrated usually only on the St. James’s feast day. And I think that one of the primary reasons for this is that nowadays we don’t have anymore the needed spiritual level in order to be “one” in the middle of the church. To do so, we need to have the conscience of our weakness.
