--- the Ukrainian Greek Catholic and recent Ruthenian Byzantine Catholic Church Creed says "For us and our salvation"
I attend a Ukrainian parish from time to time and the Symbol of Faith has not changed, either in English or Ukrainian. The 1988 translation of the Divine Liturgy (English & Ukrainian) issued by the Synod of Ukrainian Catholic Bishops is still officially used. (Evidently there are other parishes that use an older English translation.) Where did you see something that corresponds to the Pittsburgh novota? (If "Diak" were here he'd be all over you for saying that, since you and I both know that the Ukrainian Catholics can do no wrong, at least, not compared to Pittsburgh.)
... fasting is taught Roman Catholic style...
But they still were taught proper fasting.
To be fair (can we try, please? you're starting to sound like a Bitter Betty), the place of the minor fasts was officially restored in the last few years in the Pittsburgh Metropolia. And while fasting practice is far from rigorous, there are a few more days now of obligatory abstinence than there had been a few years ago.
milked down Roman Catholic teachings that have become the teachings in your sui juris churches.
Do you mean that RC teachings are milked down, or that ours are milked down even further than RC "teachings" are?
So years ago the Greek Catholic Churches were restricted heavily in Liturgical practice by the Latins.
We certainly have a long tradition of following the Latins in liturgical practice (e.g., cutting out vespers in favor of anticipated Saturday evening Divine Liturgies, adopting the Way of the Cross as the usual parochial Great Fast service), but restricted heavily
by the Latins? No, the Latins never forced us to do anything liturgically we didn't want to do ourselves. (Clerical celibacy is hardly a liturgical practice.)
you look in another place and latin teachings are the rule.
What exactly are you referring to? And how is that put into practice?
The official catechism in English for the North American Churches of the Byzantine Tradition is Light for Life
, which doesn't talk about the Immaculate Conception of Mary, or Purgatory, or Indulgences, or even much about Papal Authority if at all.
The official catechetical texts for children in those Churches are the God With Us
series, which likewise doesn't broach the subject of "Latin teachings." They are too busy teaching about the Liturgy, the Commandments, the Holy Mysteries, and living a moral life.
Someone can request a Divine Liturgy for the intention of the "Poor Souls" (i.e., in Purgatory), but I haven't heard of any clergy telling people they should do that. A parish here and there has Divine Mercy devotions but the bishops have never recommended such a thing.
If anyone has any doubts on the position of the Immaculate Conception in the Ruthenian Byzantine Catholic Church then please attend the huge Uniontown Pilgrimage where the gender neutral language loving sisters have a giant Immaculate Conception shrine (at a Ruthenian Byzantine Catholic Convent).
The "giant Immaculate Conception shrine" is actually called the Lourdes Grotto which commemorates the appearance of the Theotokos in France where she supposedly said "I am the Immaculate Conception." That shrine is well over 60 years old, and it is massive, and it is a popular place of prayer & lighting of candles as well as being the locus for the water that is blessed by the hierarchs at the opening of the pilgrimage. Services other than the water blessing are not held there, but it is one of the most recognizable places on the whole grounds of Mt. St. Macrina. To take this shrine down or massively retool it would be a huge financial undertaking for the Sisters of St. Basil (who are just trying to make ends meet as it is) and would probably not go over well with many of the pilgrims.
The good news is I heard they finally stopped having Eucharistic Adoration at this pilgrimage that thousands of Byzantine/Greek Catholics attend.
Well, no, they stopped with the Eucharistic procession and the Supplication to the Holy Eucharist service. Eucharistic Adoration, in the sense of the Eucharist being "exposed" on the altar for a period of time where the faithful simply pray before it in silence, was to my knowledge never a practice of that pilgrimage, neither in the 20 years I've been attending it, nor any time before that.
You "heard"... well, if you find that so objectionable and seeing as how it's not done, why don't you come and see for yourself?
