Pope John Paul II Reflections on
the Eastern Rite Catholic Churches

Pope John Paul II has frequently focused on the traditions and spirituality of the Christian brothers and sisters of the East, both the Eastern Rite Churches that are in union with the Pope, such as the Mother of God Catholic Church, and also the Orthodox Churches. The Eastern Rite Catholic Churches and the Orthodox Churches share the same Divine Liturgy, the Mass, an older form of the Mass dating back to the third century.

Some of the Holy Father's words on the Eastern Churches follow:
