Additional information about history of Moleben:

The Emmanuel Moleben is a Service Prayer to prepare for the birth of Christ.  “The time of the Christmas Fast (also known as Philip’s Fast, the period from November 16 through December 24) calls Byzantine Catholics (and all Eastern Christians) to fasting, prayer, and the giving of alms. This service is set up so that it can be served once during the Fast, or once a week … . The chant given here is a combination of traditional Carpatho-Rusyn melodies and some new compositions from Slovakia and the United States. The intention is to help all who pray the Moleben to enter more deeply into the Scriptures (both those which prophesy the coming of the Messiah and those which give the Gospel details leading up to his birth).” (Copied from: Metropolitan Cantor Institute, Byzantine Catholic Seminary, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, November 2007)
