The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented, Volume IV: Services of Supplication (Moliebens)

   
Translated from Church Slavonic with notes by St. Tikhon’s Monastery

Volume IV of The Great Book of Needs, Expanded and Supplemented

“The Service of Supplication (lit. ‘Supplicatory Singing’—hereafter referred to as ‘Molieben’) signifies a special Divine Service in which the Lord, His Mother, and His Saints are entreated concerning the sending down of mercy from God or thanksgiving to God for the receiving of benefits. The composition of such Services closely resembles Matins. They may be celebrated in the temple itself, in private homes, or as part of a Cross-Procession.”
—“Services of Supplication (Moliebens)”
