Ukrainian Catholic Major Archbishop Shevchuk On Pope Francis I

29 Aug

It has been reported that though Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of Northern Italian Bloodlines, was raised in the Roman Rite, he did serve as an Altar Server in his young age at a Ukrainian Greek Catholic Parish in Buenos Aires, at the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom and St Basil The Great.
As a Jesuit, he has Faculties to offer the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom and St Basil The Great. Now these are two Ancient Catholic Church Liturgies, which are older in form than the Tridentine Latin Mass. In both cases, when the Priest offers these Liturgies, he faces Liturgical East.
So, Papam Franciscum I, when ordained as a Priest, never offered the Tridentine Latin Mass, but only the Mass of Paul VI.
Hence, he may have more of an Eastern Catholic Church Orientation than one may have known.
This was reported by the former Ukrainian Catholic Bishop of Buenos Aires, Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, now headquartered in Kviv(Kiev), Ukraine, who knows Papum Franciscum I from his days of being Archbishop of Buenos Aires, who doubled as Apostolic Administrator of The Byzantine Catholic See in Argentina.

In effect, we have a Byzantine Pope.

Kyrie Elaison!
