The Church Militant In The Byzantine Rite

22 Jan

Michael Voris is NO MATCH for the Ukrainian Greek Catholics in Manhattan’s East Village. If Voris ever got out of line with these Catholics, they would march on “The Warehouse In Detroit”, with lit torches. They would even be joined by Tridentine Latin Mass Communities, one on the East Side of Manhattan on East 43rd Street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue and the one on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. This Sight wouldn’t be pretty, especially the Chant of “S, S, P, X”.
Thanks to the Discombobuluted, Ever Loving MTA, with E Trains running Local over the F Line & A Trains running over the F Line, I eventually decided against the NO Mass & went to St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in the East Village on E 7th Street between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue for the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom. It was at 4:00PM in English. It was a Low Mass as there was no Cantor Available.

It was Sunday Before Theophany(Epiphany), as this Parish operates on the Julian Calendar(Yesterday was January 4th on the Julian Calendar). I did see some amici from Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan at this Divine Liturgy. Nouveau Tridentine Latin Mass Catholics, particularly the younger ones, will not hesitate to head to the Byzantine Rite Catholic Divine Liturgies. They do hesitate to head to the Novus Ordo Mass though.
The Divine Liturgy Of St John Chrysostom was offered by The Economos(Pastor) of St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, the Very Reverend Fr Bernard Panzcuk, OSBM(Ordo Sancti Basilli Magni, or Order of St. Basil The Great), Fr Superior of The Order.
The Baptism Of The Lord was The Theme & so was the Descent Of The Holy Ghost in the form of A Dove. The Holy Ghost makes us Holy, as Does Christ having instituted The Eucharist just before He died on The Cross.But, thtough Baptism, we enter into Christ’s Life through Grace.

In Nomini Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritu Sancti, Amen.
