Resources

Here I offer as many helpful resources as I can during this time of Coronavirus uncertainty. It is my hope and desire to offer some spiritual support for those seeking it. If there is a resource that you feel might be of use to you or others, please email me at JosephMartinka at Gmail dot com. This resources section is under construction. 

Prayers
This prayer rule is just one example. There are a plethora of other options and if you are in doubt you can and should ask your Spiritual Father or Confessor for guidance. Nothing posted here should ever be an alternative for that. 

1. A Prayer Rule (pdf)

Liturgikon
During a time when there is no Liturgy or services available to us we have been given a service called the Typika, which can be sung/chanted in the absence of a priest. I will attempt to lay out the basic outline for the major services (Sunday Liturgy and Vespers/Vigil) and then some of the upcpming Major Feasts as they occur.
