Holy Things for the Holy & Pure

The following three part video is a video commentary on the Holy Qurbana, created by Rev. Fr. Zachariah (Diju) Skariah, a priest of the Southwest American Diocese. Father Zachariah completed this video commentary as part of his fulfillment of his Master of Divinity thesis project at St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary, South Canaan, Pennsylvania.

This video commentary includes scriptural references, prayers, and explanations in correlation with the actions in the Divine Liturgy, narrated by Father Zachariah. Holy Qurbana is celebrated by Rev. Fr. Abraham (Abi) Chacko, a priest of the Northeast American Diocese, currently on leave serving in the Southwest American Diocese.

We pray that this video commentary will educate both young and old of our Church, and assist those who wish to learn more about the Divine Liturgy, as served in the West Syriac Liturgical tradition.
