Heavenly Aramaic Byzantine Chant - Archimandrite Seraphim Bit-Haribi.

The richness of our faith transmitted in a call to the heavenly through Orthodox chant in the Aramaic language. By immersing oneself in this beauty, one strives for inner beauty. Thanks be to God for all living things, for nature and the environment around us. Thanks be to God for giving us breath. May He have mercy on us. And may all the saints intercede for us.

Thank you Archimandrite Seraphim Bit-Haribi for showing us glimpses of the eternal.

Fr Seraphim Cardoza of St Innocent Orthodox Church

I recently contacted Fr Seraphim for an interview on social media. He humbly declined, but I appreciated the few exchanges we had over email. Here he appears on thedove.us which is mainly an evangelical program. The host of the show, and president of KDOV is Perry Atkinson, and I credit this dialogue with much of the grassroots exchange that needs to occur in order for understanding to come between various Christians faiths and denominations. 

It is fair to say, that Fr Seraphim's online discussions with Perry Atkinson have fetched more hits than any other priest in the Eastern Orthodox Church based in the USA. Archpriest Seraphim Cardoza is a member of the Russian Orthodox Church and St Innocent is located in Rogue River, Oregon. Visit the web site here. If I recall correctly, previously Archpriest Cardoza was an evangelical pastor before converting to Eastern Orthodoxy.
