By Church Type

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

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Matthew 5:43-44 ESV)

Lenten Prayer of St. Ephrem

O Lord and Master of my life, drive away from me the spirit of despondency, carelessness, love of power, and idle chatter. (Prostration)

Rather grant to me, Your servant, the spirit of wholeness of being, humility, patience, and love. (Prostration)

Yes, O Lord and King, grant that I may see my own faults and not condemn my brother; for You are blessed to the ages of ages. Amen. (Prostration)

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

No one has to be embarrassed over his sinful state. ‘There is no man who, while living, does not sin,’ and the more sinful the man, the stronger will be God’s help in leading him out of his sinful mire. But the help of God comes only when the sinner repents with heartfelt contrition and has the will to reform. Not seeing in himself enough strength of soul to break away from sinful deeds, he asks for God’s help. This is where the mercy of God, Who does not wish the death of the sinner but wants him to be converted and live, is often evident.… If the voice of conscience awakens in us a feeling of remorse or repentance, then we must pray fervently to the Guardian Angel of our human existence that he may keep us from corrupt downfalls and help us ‘serve God with fear and trembling.’

Elder Macarius of Optina
