Just wishing all the other Eastern Catholics out here a good and spiritually beneficial Lent, and a good celebration of the Sunday of Orthodoxy.

I thought Byzantine, Ukrainian, and Melkite Catholics used the Orthodox Calendar?

Thank you!  And to you, too!

It varies from parish to parish in North America.

Well, I think oregano is holy, so maybe fenugreek is okay too.

Well, I can't speak for the other Traditions, but Melkites in America definitely celebrated the Sunday of Orthodoxy today, as my children and I were part of the icon procession.  Always a crowd pleaser for young children.  :)

I know it exists, but it's still funny.

Are there Eastern Catholic parishes/cathedrals which read the whole Synodikon of Orthodoxy? Maybe the Melkites?

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Well, I'm in the Ruthenian Archeparchy of Pittsburgh, and we did the icon procession today as well. Never seen so many icons in my life outside of russian cathedrals!

The priest at my first Melkite parish loved to point out that Melkites celebrate the same Eastern date as the majority of Christians in whatever place you're talking about. (He mentioned somewhere -- I don't remember where, maybe in Africa or the Middle East -- where the Eastern date is neither of the two dates that we usually think of.)

Needless to say, it's not a matter of Rome saying: You have to celebrate Easter on such and such.
