The Online Reader Service
At this point, the collection of services is not yet complete, but it is our hope to put more of these services online as time and opportunity permit. At this point, only the services of Small and Great Compline and the Midnight Office take into account Lenten variations. In time, Lenten texts of the hours, Vespers, and Matins, will be added. All of these services are set up as reader services, for use when there is no priest to serve the usual services. The translation used is primarily that of Fr. Lawrence of Jordanville. The order of service is based primarily on the Reader Service Typikon by Bishop Daniel (the Old Rite Bishop of the ROCA) and translated by Fr. George Lardas. All the psalms are from The Psalter According to the Seventy, Copyright Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, MA, used by permission. Some other material, such as prayers and hymns, are also Copyright HTM, used by permission. All rights reserved. These works may not be further reproduced, beyond printing out a single copy for personal non-commercial use, without the prior written authorization of Holy Transfiguration Monastery.
It should be noted that these are not official liturgical texts of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, and no doubt have some shortcomings that will hopefully be improved over time.
Most of these texts had minor revisions, which were posted on 2-24-2002
