Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts

One of the more beautiful services throughout Great Lent that many of us miss as it occurs during the week, personally hoping to take a Wednesday or Friday off in the next couple of weeks to go to one in our parish. Even more beautiful in a church such as Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow such as in the youtube clip below. Not the entire service but one of the more moving times, particularly the prayers being sung – your mileage may vary at your local parish where there is not tribes of clergy and voices but still beautiful none the less.

March 14, 2012, on Wednesday 3rd week of Lent, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church headed by the ministry of the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.
