About This Website

Cross "Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.” (Mark 15:16)

ByzCath.org was launched in October 1996 to provide information about the Byzantine Catholic Churches in America. Now, in its second decade, byzcath.org is working to expand to provide information about all the Eastern Christian Churches with more information about the Faith (including downloadable resources), "News of the Christian East" and upgraded messageboards.

ByzCath.org is an unofficial site. We strive to provide an accurate presentation of Church Teachings. If you believe we have failed in this task please let us know.

As this site expands we hope to contribute to the “New Evangelization” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Resurrection

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down Death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life! (Troparion)

Although You descended into the tomb, O Immortal, * You destroyed the power of Hades; * You arose as the Victor, O Christ God, * saying “Rejoice!” to the myrrh-bearing women * and granting peace to your Apostles, * O You who gives resurrection to the fallen.” (Kontakion) 

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Go and have pity on all, for through pity, one finds freedom of speech before God. 

Abba Pambo
