England


No canonical jurisdiction has been erected for the Belarusian Russian Greek-Catholic Church in England. Accordingly, its faithful are canonically subject to the local Latin Ordinary within whose diocese they reside. The Church does have an organized presence in the UK and the Apostolic Visitator ad nutum Sanctae Sedis for Belarusan Greek-Catholics Outside Belarus is resident there.

The incumbent Apostolic Visitator is a mitred protopresbyter, having requested not to be ordained to the episcopate. He does, however, exercise a spiritual omophor as regards the Church's faithful in the diaspora.

Holy Angels

O Supreme Leaders of the heavenly armies, * we, who are unworthy, ever beseech you, * that through your prayers you may surround us * with the shelter of the wings of your immaterial glory, * watching over us who fervently fall down and cry out: * “Deliver us from perils, * for you are the commanders of the Powers on high!” (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.

O Supreme Leaders of the armies of God * and ministers of the Divine Glory, * princes of angels and guides of men, * ask for us what is expedient for us and for great mercy, * for you are the leaders of the Bodiless Hosts. (Kontakion - Tone 2)

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

We truly love God and keep His commandments if we restrain ourselves from our pleasures. For he who still abandons himself to unlawful desires certainly does not love God, since he contradicts Him in his own intentions. . . Therefore, he loves God truly, whose mind is not conquered by consent to evil delight. For the more one takes pleasure in lower things, the more he is separated from heavenly love.

St. Gregory the Great
