4. Place Names - Asterisks & Numbers?


What Does An Asterisk (*) After a Place Name Mean?

An asterisk (*) after a place name denotes that its entry is cross-listed in two categories or subcategories. This can occur in two instances:

The entry for a temple that, presently or historically, was established to serve an identifiable constituent sub-group of a Church sui iuris will be cross-listed to both the sub-group and to its parent Church sui iuris.

  • Example: The entry for a Russian Catholic Old Ritualist temple will be cross-listed to both the Russian Catholic Old Ritualists and to the Russian Greek-Catholic Church.

The entry for a temple that, presently or historically, was established by a Church sui iuris to afford pastoral care to the faithful of another, different, Church sui iuris will be cross-listed to both Churches sui iuris.

  • Example: Faithful of the Hungarian (Magyar) Greek-Catholic Church have no canonical jurisdiction in Canada. Pastoral care is afforded to them by the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church (UGCC).  Parishes erected by the UGCC to serve the Hungarian faithful are cross-listed to both Churches sui iuris.

What Does A Number After A Place Name Mean?

It was decided that, when there are (or were) more than a single temple in a particular city or town, the entries would be alphabetically ordered by the names of the temples. The first entry has no number after the place name. Subsequent entries are numbered beginning with zero (0) and continuing through nine (9). In instances when there are more than eleven (11) temples in a particular city or town, numbers higher than 9 appear as 91, 92, etc (because the software used in the directory counts differently than humans do).

  • Example: If there were three temples in city of Los Alamos, New Mexico,  the place name entries would be listed numerically as follows (thus, alphabetizing the church names):
  • NM: Los Alamos       (Byzantine Outreach of Los Alamos)
  • NM: Los Alamos - 0 (St Addai Chaldean Catholic Church)
  • NM: Los Alamos - 1 (St John the Baptist Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

He who suffers wrong and does not demand any reparation from the man who wronged him, trusts in Christ to make good the loss; and he is rewarded a hundredfold in this world and inherits eternal life (cf. Mk 10:30).
