Deisis (Novogorod)


This Directory component is divided into sections for each of the 24 Eastern and Oriental Catholic Churches sui iuris (including the Georgian Greek-Catholic Church, which now exists only in blessed memory) that, together with the Latin Catholic Church, constitute the Catholic Communion. Additionally, there are five sections specific to ethnic, cultural, or ritual communities of faithful which do not themselves constitute Churches sui iuris but, rather, represent distinct constituent entities within a Church sui iuris. The entries in each of those sections are cross-listed in the section devoted to its parent Church sui iuris.

Each section seeks to include all active parishes and missions of a particular Church and, in some instances (chiefly in the diaspora) also lists historical entries. To understand the purpose, nature, and scope of the latter, we recommend reading the detailed explanation of historical entries at Frequently Asked Questions.

Teachings of Christ

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12 ESV)

Exaltation of the Cross

Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance; * grant victory to Your Church over her enemies * and protect Your commonwealth by Your Cross. (Troparion - Tone 1)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Willingly lifted up on the Cross, O Christ God, * bestow Your compassions upon the new commonwealth that bears Your name. * By your power grant joy to Your Church, * granting her victory over her enemies. * May she have your Cross as the weapon of peace * and the invincible ensign of victory. (Kontakion - Tone 4)

The Church celebrates the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on September 14th.

Random Proverb

"My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you." (Proverbs 3:1,2 ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

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

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

Long ago, the wily one cast his weapon and wounded Adam and killed him; Indeed, he completely destroyed the weak man. But now, even if he struck the bodies of the noble men, he did not destroy their spirits. He persuaded the first-created man to fall by words, but not even by deeds, the noble ones. Bewitching the former, he made promises; he made offers to the latter: For Adam, the making of a god; for the martyrs, honor. He offers what he does not have; he suggests bestowing things not in his authority. Therefore, saints, having shattered his scheme, You gained crowns.
