Melkite Greek Catholic Church


"Is it customary to say the anaphora aloud or silently in the Melkite usage of the Byzantine rite?"

Bishop John's Answer:

According to the latest recommendations issued by the (Melkite) Synodal Liturgical Commission in 1992, "Prayers, in general, are not secret (in silence)" We insist that the Anaphora should be recited aloud. We leave to the initiative of the celebrant to decide which other prayers he would recite at a loud voice. If a prayer is said at a low voice, it should be recited in a way that the concelebrating priests hear it."
