The habit of reading the so-called „Prayers of the Kathismata” is, according to Cyrille Korolevskij, one of the most ancient and monastic tradition of our Church. The problem raised by the current practice is that of the sections on how to read these prayers, sections that no one today observes as they should, perhaps out of indifference, unawareness or even ignorance. Therefore, the present study reproduces some of the aspects related to this rather delicate situation, in our opinion.
