When She's Mad in SASS Wire Saloon Posted July 17 The worst argument Lisa and I had was about church. Not going, but parts of the service. We had gotten home and bedded down after a Liturgy of the Presanctifed Gifts (look it up). She asked, "What is happening in the Altar during the Kathisma?" (a set of Psalms) "Kathisma? What Kathisma?" She looked at me like I was an idiot. "What do you mean, "What Kathisma?" You know, when we sing (sings a few verses)." "Oh! You mean the Antifons!" "No, the Kathisma." "There is no Kathima!" Back and forth a few times, each convinced that the other is being intentionally dense. Finally I go get a service book, she gets a choir binder. My book calls it Antifon, choir calls the same part Kathisma. We were both right and both wrong. We were amazed at how quickly we got irked at each other. We still laugh about it almost 30 years later.
