Cross

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5)

The goal of byzcath.org is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ by providing information about His Church on earth, focusing on the Byzantine Catholic Church and the other Churches of the Christian East. If you work in communications for your local Eastern Christian Church (eparchy or diocese, Catholic or Orthodox) please consider contributing your official news and information directly to this website. ByzCath.org is read by thousands of unique individuals each day. We can help you build up the Church in your local community by making your message instantly accessible to anyone who accesses the internet.

If you are interested in contributing you can do so directly (we'll set up an account for you) or indirectly (by e-mailing us the news about your local Church). If you already publish your eparchial / diocesan news on your own official website reposting it on byzcath.org can help drive traffic to your site (since a link back to your site can be added to every news story).

Do you have photos of an event in your local Church? Send them to us! We may feature them in our "We Follow Christ" pictorial showing life in the church

Teachings of Christ

“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?" (Mark 8:34-37 ESV)

Comforter

O Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth,
Who are everywhere present and fill all things,
Treasury of Blessings and Giver of Life,
come and dwell within us,
cleanse us of all stain,
and save our souls, O Good One.

Random Proverb

"My son, do not lose sight of these — keep sound wisdom and discretion, and they will be life for your soul." (Proverbs 3:21,22a ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

When a man is disturbed or saddened under the pretext of a good and soul-profiting matter, and is angered against his neighbour, it is evident that this is not according to God: for everything that is of God is peaceful and useful and leads a man to humility and to judging himself.

St. Barsanuphius the Great
