The Divine Liturgy
in the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate,
in the Anglican Patriarchate

and in the Gallican Rite therein


The Divine Liturgy (also called the Holy Mass) is the highest form of Christian prayer. It is the true and living Sacrifice of Christ that took place upon the Cross at Calvary approximately two thousand years ago. The mass that takes place at the hands of a priest upon the altar today is the very same sacrifice in a different form. It is a corporate act of the faithful, led by the priest, standing as an Alter Christus, by which all may join themselves the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.

All bishops use the gold omophore , fanon, and the pianeta (shaped like a dalmatic) under the cope. Bishops also under certain circumstances may use the simplex pontifical liturgical vestments, which does not use the fanon or pallium.
