St. John, pray to God for us

My wife had the great blessing of venerating the relics of St. John Chrysostom at the Russian Cathedral in New York this past Monday and Tuesday.  Actually we were both supposed to go but last minute I was unable to join her. You can find photos on the ROCOR site here and here.

Above is a close up of the relics.  She also videotaped a bit of the service:

  1. How splendid! What beautiful singing at the moleben, as well. I wish they would bring the relic here at some point.

    I have wanted the music for some time for that part of the moleben after the responses and now I can transcribe it from that recording. Thank you. 🙂

  2. It would have been great to meet you. I was there Monday night at the end of Vespers and the beginning of Matins. I was waiting in line for confession on the right side of the Ambon. I had to get home to get the baby in the bath and to bed.

    St. John, pray to God for us!
