Deisis (Novogorod)


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

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’" (John 7:37-38 ESV)

Pentecost

Blessed are You, O Christ our God, * Who has shown the fishermen to be all wise, * by sending down to them the Holy Spirit, * and through them You have caught the whole world in Your net. * O Lover of Mankind, glory to You. (Troparion - Tone 8)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

When the Most High descended, confusing tongues, * He divided the nations; * but when He distributed the tongues of fire, * He called all to unity; * and, with one voice, * we glorify the Most Holy Spirit. (Kontakion - Tone 8)

Random Proverb

"My son, do not lose sight of these — keep sound wisdom and discretion, and they will be life for your soul." (Proverbs 3:21,22a ESV)

Pray Without Ceasing

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

We ought to learn the virtues through practicing them, not merely through talking about them, so that by acquiring the habit of them we do not forget what is of benefit to us. 'The kingdom of God', St. Paul says, 'resides not in words but in power' (I Cor. 4:20). For he who tries to discover things through actual practice will come to understand what gain or loss lies in any activity that he pursues..."

St. Peter of Damaskos (Book 1:A Treasury of Divine Knowledge, The Philokalia Vol. 3 pg. 183)
