Argentina – From 28 February to 5 March 2007 in Buenos Aires, the session of the Permanent Synod of Bishops of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) met. The meeting was dedicated mostly to preparations for the Patriarchal Synod of Bishops of the UGCC, to take place in Philadelphia, USA, from 26 September to 5 October 2007.

According to Patriarch Lubomyr (Husar), head of the UGCC, the task of the synod is to have a deep vision of the problems of the whole church and its life in full. “Later, we will be able to submit data for the consideration of the synod, to outline the situation in individual parishes, so that all bishops can be well informed about events in the church. This is vitally important as, in this way, the synod can function as a living body and be well-briefed to find solutions to major problems,” explained Patriarch Lubomyr.

Christ is Born!

Your Nativity, O Christ our God, * has dawned upon the world the light of knowledge. * for through it, those who served the stars * were taught by a star to worship You, the Sun of Righteousness * and to know You, the Dawn from on high. * Glory to You, O Lord! (Troparion, Tone 4)

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

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One, * and the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One. * Angels and shepherds sing His glory; * Wise Men journey with a star * for there is born for us an infant Child, the God Who is before all ages. (Kontakion, Tone 3)
