Two Apps of Note

Apps are a great way to access information…while there aren’t a huge number of Byzantine Catholic apps out there as of yet, there is a growing assortment. Two apps that I’ve downloaded and use (and so, can recommend) are Eparchy of Parma and ECPubs parma


Eparchy of Parma’s app offers links to Eastern Reflections, Prayer Resources, News, Prayer Intentions, The Daily Word, Parishes and Liturgy Times, and more…
Eastern Christian Publications provides Sunday Bulletins, Prayer of the Day, daily reflections (“Living Our Faith” and “Java With Jesus”), The Byzantine Daily Office Of Hours, and a link to their bookstore…
I’ve found both of these apps to be quite useful, and wanted to share them- the links above take you to the Google Play store (sorry, I’m an Android user)… 

Let Us Pray For Those Whom Are “Lost”


Let us pray for those whom are wandering lost. Let us pray for the intercession of The Theotokos, Searcher for the Lost for those that are wandering in depression, lost in addictions or (seemingly) unbreakable destructive habits, those separated from God’s Holy Church, etc… let us pray for those whom we love, the stranger, our “enemies” and even ourselves, that the lost may be found and guided back to the path that leads to our Father’s house!

Within the temple, O Temple of Life,
you found Him whom the universe could not contain,
silencing the teachers by the word of God,
Which is above the wisdom of the wise.

O all-pure Mother of God,
cease not seeking your children who are lost,
that we may treasure Christ in our hearts,
and find eternally our Father’s house.

-Troparion For The Mother of God, Searcher For The Lost
