  • Lætare Jerusalem: et conventum facite omnes qui diligitis eam: gaudete cum lætitia, qui in tristitia fuistis: ut exsultetis, et satiemini ab uberibus consolationis vestræ. Lætatus sum in his, quæ dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus. More from Fr Z.

  • Video: the Patriarch of Moscow. From here.
  • Video: enthronement of new Metropolitan Svyatoslav of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, from last Sunday, commemorating the cross. They were underground during Soviet rule for 40 years: heroic. As you can hear, they now have services in Ukrainian, not Slavonic any more. They want to be a patriarchate. Note to other journos: there is only one Orthodox church in the Ukraine, the one that’s part of the Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate). The two nationalist schisms and other splinters are ‘in the family’ (same beliefs and practice) but out of communion for now. Anyway, the issues about trying to be a patriarchate: the UGCC is a minority in the Ukraine, in the far west that the USSR grabbed in WWII and, without giving up the one-true-church claim, Rome doesn’t want to offend the Orthodox in the hope that one day the Orthodox will join.
  • Announcement of Philadelphia-area meeting for ordinariate. It looks like at first locally the ordinariate will be Fr Ousley and the folk of St Michael’s, Bala Cynwyd, formerly St James the Less, Philadelphia.
