The Service of the Holy Mysteries at the Convent
The Maronite Servants of Christ the Light were privileged to celebrate the Divine Liturgy for the first time at Mother of the Light Convent, offered by Father Dominique Hanna of Our Lady of the Cedars parish here in Boston. Sister Marla Marie and Therese Touma participated in this awesome prayer of praise and thanksgiving in St. Maron’s Chapel.
The beauty of the Divine Liturgy of the Maronite tradition is captured well in this prayer sung during the Communion Rite:
“You have united, O Lord, your divinity with our humanity
and our humanity with your divinity;
your life with our mortality
and our mortality with your life.
You have assumed what is ours,
and you have given us what is yours,
for the life and salvation of our souls.
To you, be glory forever.
