"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..."
- Pope John Paul II, Orientale Lumen, "Light of the East" (1995)
"That the Eastern Catholic Churches and their venerable traditions may be known and esteemed as a spiritual treasure for the whole Church."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Prayer Intention for November 2011
"Your meeting, organized under the aegis of the Episcopal Conferences of Europe, is a sign of the rich ritual variety of the Catholic Church on this continent, which is not limited to the Latin tradition. Among you, I see many who represent the different Churches of the Byzantine tradition and many from beloved Ukraine."
- Pope Francis, Address to Eastern Catholic Bishops of Europe (2019)
