A journey at the beginning that seemed impossible and scary, but came so naturally, was all consuming, with precious moments of bonding, periods of frustration and periods where I was on the verge of giving up completely.
This part of the Liturgy is also called the anaphora, which means the lifting-up or the elevation. Let us take a look at the first prayer of the anaphora.
In the altar the priest reads the following words which conclude the introductory part of the anaphora known as Praefatio in Latin: If the first part of the anaphora implies people praying on earth and showing their thanksgiving through prayer, then this part elevates the prayer into the angelic realm where the angels also participate in the eucharistic thanksgiving.
Through this we see an indivisible unity between the church on earth on the Heavenly church. The star is then placed on the side on the antimension.
It is interesting to note that during this part of the anaphora and the last words of the previous eucharistic prayer there is a four part structure to the prayers. In the next part, we hear that the angelic forces are singing the triumphant hymn, shouting, proclaiming and saying the victory song of Christ over the devil, sin and death.
It all has an important meaning. The fact is that in the Old Testament and New Testament several saints Prophets Isaiah Ezekiel and Apostle John the Theologian saw the heavenly world, in which there are certain mysterious angels appearing in the form of a man, a lion, a calf and an eagle.
The saints actually saw them. These Angels are often portrayed as symbols of the evangelists. An angel in human form - the holy apostle and evangelist Matthew symbol of the connection of the Old and New Testaments, the symbol of the messiahship of our Lord Jesus Christ ; the lion - the holy apostle and evangelist Mark symbol of royalty, the Divine nature of the Savior ; calf - the holy apostle and evangelist Luke symbol of Christ's atoning sacrifice ; eagle - the holy apostle and evangelist John the Theologian symbol of the ascended spiritual state, heavenliness, the divinity of the Savior's teachings.
Prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel along with Apostle John the Theologian have seen these angel-like creatures, as we see from their writings in the canonical books of the Old and New Testament: Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze. The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings.
Their wings touched one another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle.
And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.
The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: Prophet Isaiah also speaks of the Angels glorifying the Lord in their songs: Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: And one cried to another and said: Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory!
Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord! It is as if people are glorifying God following the angelic example. And we believe that at this moment the Angels truly sing together with us. These were the words people exclaimed when they greeted Christ as he entered into Jerusalem.
