Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh
The Archeparchy of Pittsburgh is part of the BYZANTINE CATHOLIC METROPOLITAN CHURCH OF PITTSBURGH, USA which consists of the Archeparchy and three eparchies:
“Considering all this, therefore, dearly beloved, and placing great store on our salvation, let us despise intemperance as mindless and harmful, let us embrace fasting, and right attitudes along with it; let us display a renewed lifestyle, and address ourselves daily to performance of good deeds. In this way, having spent all the holy season of Lent dealing in spiritual goods and amassing great wealth of virtue, we would thus merit to arrive at the day of the Lord and approach with confidence that awesome spiritual banquet, and with conscience pure share in those ineffable and immortal goods. Being filled therefore with grace and with the prayers and intercessions of those well-pleasing to Christ, our loving God, to whom with the Father and the Holy Spirit we give glory, power, and honor, now and forever, for ages of ages.”

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever! Slava Isusu Christu! Slava na v'iki!
Dear Faithful of the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh,
As we begin the season of the Great Lenten Fast, we turn inward and look for spiritual healing. When our bodies are not feeling well, we go to a doctor or a drug store for medicine to feel better. Likewise, Saint John Chrysostom’s Homily at the Beginning of Lent described the Church as the pharmacy. During the season of Lent, we go to Church for spiritual medicine to make us better.
The strongest spiritual medicine is fasting.
