It appears that the person who flagged this article as needing diversity was indicating the focus on Slavic practice without any reference to Greek practice (with the possible exception of the word "orthros" rather than "matins" [an English word] and the mention of the holy mountain — mentioning the Greek word for vigil doesn't count). The description of parochial practice is almost entirely Russian (and only cathedrals, monasteries, and large parishes attempt the full cycle) for Sundays and feast days. Orthros for Greek typicon parishes (Greeks, Antiochians, etc.) is taken, not in the evening, but in the morning. The hours are typically omitted; orthros moves directly into the liturgy. I'm not sure I'm the best person to try to integrate the Greek practice into the article, but I'm sure this is what the flagger was pointing out here. --Basil 14:23, April 1, 2007 (PDT)
