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

Exaltaton of the Cross

Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance. * Grant victory to Your Church over her enemies * and protect your people by Your Cross. (Troparion)

Willing raised upon the Cross, O Christ God, * You bestow Your mercies upon a new people who are called by Your Name. *  May Your Church rejoice in Your strength. * Give her victory over every enemy. * May she have Your help as the weapon of peace, * the invincible ensign of victory. (Kontakion)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

The demons are sleepless and immaterial, death is at hand, and I am weak. Lord, help me; do not let Your creature perish, for You care for me in my misery.

St. Peter of Damascus
