Paraklesis
A Paraklesis is a Service of Supplication specifically for the living – the Church Militant as opposed to a Memorial Service, which is the Supplication Service for the reposed souls – the Church Triumphant. This beautiful Holy Service is most often addressed to our Ever Blessed, All Holy Lady, The Ever Virgin Mary and Theotokos (Mother of God). However, the Paraklesis Service is also applicable for beseeching the Intercessory Prayers of any Holy Saint. The distinguishing feature of a Paraklesis is the inclusion of a Supplicatory Canon to the Saint whose Intercessory Prayers to God are sought. A Paraklesis can be served as a stand-alone Service or, in a slightly abbreviated form, in conjunction with the Holy Vespers Service. At any time of need, threat or danger – no matter whether Spiritual or physical - we may offer a Paraklesis Service since we always need the Intercessory Prayers of our Holy Mother, Theotokos, and all the Saints, who are certainly much closer to God than us who are still struggling through our lifetime. In Slavic Practice, there is a similar Service – a Molieben - which is either served as a stand alone Service or in conjunction with the Divine Liturgy. During the Dormition Fast, which is from 1 August until 14 August, we chant the Great and Small Paraklesis (alternately) each evening, with the exception of Saturday evening and the Eve or Forefeast of Christ’s Transfiguration on 5 August and the Forefeast of the Dormition of the Ever Blessed Theotokos on 14 August. The Small Paraklesis or Supplicatory Canon to the Most Holy Theotokos was composed by Theosteriktos the Monk in the 9th Century, while the Great Paraklesis or Suppllicatory Canon to our Beloved Lady Theotokos was composed by Emperor Theodore I - Dukas Laskaris - in the 13th Century. The cycle of the Dormition Parakleses is determined by two Rules: 1. the cycle begins with the Small Supplicatory Canon whenever 1 August falls on Monday to Friday 2. on Sunday evening, the Great Supplicatory Canon is always served. Outside the Dormition Fast, the Small Supplicatory Canon, directed to the Ever Blessed Theotokos, is always chanted.
