What is the Byzantine Rite?
What is the Alexandrian Rite?
1. Wikipedia: "The Byzantine Rite, also known as the Greek Rite or Constantinopolitan Rite, is the liturgical rite used by the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Greek/Byzantine Catholic churches, and in a modified form, Byzantine Rite Lutheranism."
2. Wikipedia: "The Alexandrian Rite is the liturgical rite used by the Coptic Orthodox church of Alexandria, Eritean Orthodox Tewahedo Church, and Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, as well as by the three corresponding Eastern Catholic Churches."
Saint Thecla is a demoted saint in Roman Catholicism since the 1960s (September 23), but she still is a saint in the Byzantine Rite (September 24) and also in the Alexandrian Rite (October 3); nonetheless, the Acts of Paul and Thecla are found in the New Testament Apocrypha (this is Saint Thecla and Saint Paul, Apostle) (also, this is not the Acts of Paul)
