Divine Liturgy - Anaphora

During the Divine Liturgy, the Anaphora is begun immediately after the Nicean Creed. The Liturgy of Sacrifice begins with the Anaphora, which is also called the Cannon.

The Anaphora is the great thanksgiving prayer of the Divine Liturgy that lifts us up to God. The Anaphora includes the priest saying the words "Let us lift up our hearts”.

The Anaphora is said aloud during the Divine Liturgy.

Bishop John Elya's Answers

What is the Melkite custom for silent prayers during the liturgy - Anaphora and Silent Prayers: "Is it customary to say the anaphora aloud or silently in the Melkite usage of the Byzantine rite?"

Melkite Greek Catholic Church Information Center is dedicated to my cousins: Bucky (Richard C. Liles) and Shirley (Shirley Jean Liles Buck). Bucky fell asleep in the Lord on Dec. 12, 2000 and Shirley fell asleep in the Lord on Nov. 8, 2001.
O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
