Post subject:  Rites

Is there a website somewhere where I can find a table or list of Rites of the Catholic Church (in communion with Rome), and Rites of the Orthodox Churches (not in communion with Rome) ?

I did a search and found this but it doesn't really specify which Rites aren't in communion with Rome. Everything but the Latin Rites are listed under the "Eastern Catholic Church" but that's not the same as the Orthodox Churches, isn't it?

Here is a list of the Eastern Catholic Rites. Please be advised that the accompanying commentary is considered to be rather insulting by our Eastern Catholic brethren.

I don't know of any good list of Eastern Orthodox Churches.

Here's a link from New Advent:

Basically, a rite is the form of observance.

Edit: Can someone give me some code pointers, please?

It'd be really good if you can mark with some sort of a symbol which are in communion with Rome and which aren't, like those sites given above. Really useful!

Those are just liturgies, which you can go to as a Catholic

Rites is a pre-Vatican II term that seems to presume that it's just a matter of a different liturgy. We now use the term particular churches. There are 21 particular Churches in the Catholic Church. The largest is the Latin Catholic Church ("Latin Rite") which the Pope leads by virtue of his office as Patriarch of the West. The Eastern Catholic Churches are not subject to the Pope's patriarchal jurisdiction but are subject to his jurisdiction as supreme pontiff (such as a Latin Catholic of the diocese of Detroit is subject to Cardinal Adam as his bishop, not the Pope, while a Catholic in Rome is subject to the Pope as Pope and ALSO as his diocesan bishop). In other words, the Pope wears 3 basic hats:

1) Diocesan bishop of Rome
2) Patriarch of the Latin Catholic Church
3) Pope of the Universal Church

So Eastern Catholic Churches are self-governing churches, some with their own patriarchs, who are in communion with the Latin Church and accept papal universal jurisdiction.

Orthodox are also considered particular churches (c.f. Dominus Iesus) but they are seen as partially lacking because they lack communion with Rome and do not accept papal universal jurisdiction, while Eastern Catholic Churches do.

I probably made this sound more complicated than it is; here is a website by Eastern Catholics where you can learn more: www.byzcath.org

To sum up: Eastern Catholics are not just generic Catholics who have a special mass, but are members of churches that have their own distinct liturgical and cultural traditions. You can't belong to a Rite but you can belong to a particular Church. A particular Church celebrates a particular Rite (The Latin Church uses the Latin Rite, the Ruthenian Church uses the Byzantine Rite, etc).

Without a doubt an explanation of absolute lucidity.

That chart sometimes makes things look a little more complicated than they are. I've always wanted to make a slightly more streamlined version but never have.
