    Who Reads the Gospel?

    The reading of the Resurrection Gospel at Matins comes from Jerusalem where it was the prerogative of the Patriarch. As the Typicon of St Sabbas spread it was relegated to the priest.

    Identity and background of Eastern Catholics

    You are confusing the Church Triumphant with triumphalism.

    Identity and background of Eastern Catholics

    Accept mainstream Orthodoxy doesn’t practice what it preaches so there is nothing to be triumphalist about as the recent episodes in Ukraine and Macedonia show. Churches going into and out communion and schism with one another is hardly the image of visible unity.

    I think you are overthinking it.😉

    Strange icons

    I guess I saw it more like Palm Sunday. The branches were strewn on the path as well as waved.

    Strange icons

    Stylistic choice. How could it mean condemnation?

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    I don’t approve of the Azov battalion but Russians complaining about it while they deploy their own neo-Nazi pagans is a bit much.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    I never said that. Quit deflecting. Putin lied. Saying he wasn’t going to invade Ukraine. He invaded. And has been lying ever since. Wake up.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    Easily. Putin has been lying since from before the invasion but now he is telling the truth? Take the blinders off man. Who denies Azov Batallion? On the other hand, Putin denies any connection to Wagner Group, neo-Nazi, neo-pagan mercs Putin feels no shame in using. Wake up.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    And these are verified by a third party?

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    Because being bombed in a shelter is better than being shot in a camp? Let’s hope Ukrainian numbers don’t rise to those of the Serbs.

    Pope to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to Immaculate Heart of Mary

    That clergy went rogue is without question. That the Vatican approved those action is false and you know it.
