A Russian Rite Catholic Ordination
Joseph over at Byzantine Texas has a video up of a priest being ordained into the Russian Rite of the Catholic Church. The Russian Rite is among the smallest of Rome's various uniate churches and the last I heard they had no bishops of their own. There is a Russian Rite parish in San Francisco not far from ROCOR's cathedral. I have always meant to visit but never seem to have gotten around to it. The title of the post suggests that some people will be upset by it since the newly ordained priest is formerly Orthodox. Personally, it's not something that I am getting worked up over, though I do take exception to the term "Orthodox in communion with Rome." See my comment there.
