God physically walked the earth two thousand years ago, but because He looked like an ordinary man, only some believed Him. Today, He is physically present in the form of what looks like ordinary Bread and Wine and again only some believe Him. We believe and so we speak out (2 Co 4:13). Glory be to Jesus Christ! Glory be to Him forever!
We celebrate the Divine Liturgy of Apostolic origin, (as received from St. James, the Bishop of Jerusalem, and later shortened by Sts. Basil and Chrysostom) in all its pristine beauty and majesty as we have never had any liturgical innovations. Any Catholic may satisfy their Mass obligations and receive the Holy Sacraments at Epiphany of Our Lord.
"Since, in fact, we believe that the venerable and ancient tradition of the Eastern Churches is an integral part of the heritage of Christ's Church, the first need for Catholics is to be familiar with that tradition, so as to be nourished by it and to encourage the process of unity in the best way possible for each." (Orientale Lumen, Pope John PauL II)
Statement of the Roman Rite Diocese of St. Petersburg.
Jesus established the Kingdom of God. A kingdom is hierarchical and is authori-tatively dependent on the direct objective obedience of the King's subjects; i. e. there must exist a chain of command.
Adam and Eve chose subjective personal opinion in preference to direct objective obedience. That was the original sin of the human race and the sin from which all other sins evolve.

Understanding what we must do to be saved is very simple, but not easy to live.
God explains salvation to us each and every time we pray the Our Father: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven."
From Jesus' lips to our ears, we hear what we must do to be saved - God's Holy Will, not our own human will which is strongly attached to our personal subjective opinions.
Salvation is a matter of Union with God: a union of wills, ours with God's, so that we become truly one as Jesus prayed: "That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me." (Jn 17:24)
