PITTSBURGH POST-OAZFTTE B THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1999 B-7 STATEREGION Joy to the world for millions ORTHODOX FROM PAGE B-1 Except for this ongoing Christmas date dichotomy, there aren't many other differences within the Orthodox Christian Church. Members of the 15 self-governing Orthodox churches around the world in countries such as the United States, Serbia, Romania, Greece and Russia plus the ancient centers of orthodoxy in Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem are united in the essentials of faith, liturgy and hierarchy. There are much bigger differences in Christmas services and basic theology between the Orthodox and the Western Christian churches, which include Roman Catholics and, since the late 1500s, the Protestants. The so-called Eastern and Western roots of Christianity are like siblings who argue and then harbor a lifelong grudge. This rift has lasted nearly 1,200 years, kicked off by the christening on Christmas Day 800 of Charlemagne as the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Today, even though both Orthodox and Catholics trace their genealogy to the same source and share similarities in liturgy, and vestments, they remain enduring rivals because of a couple of critical canonical and theological differences: fealty to the pope and wording of the church's original creed. What does it all have to do with Christmas? Cont. from Page B-6 MILLER EDWIN S. On Wed., Jan. 6, 1999; beloved husband of Lucille T.

O'Bryan, Cathleen S, O'Bryan and Dantel S. O'Bryan; grandmother of Tera and Ronny Wilson and of Orthodox Thousands of Orthodox Christians today are in the midst of their Christmas celebration because they follow the Julian calendar, attributed to Julius Caesar, The emperor ordered the Egyptian astronomer Sosigenes to correct the existing 355-day Roman calendar, which had to add a month of 22 or 23 days every other year to compensate for lost days. Sosigenes made a new calendar with three years of 365 days and the fourth year with 306 days, beginning in January. Until the late 1500s, the entire Christian church followed the Julian calendar. But then Pope Gregory XIII came out with his own version, to compensate for the 11 minutes of extra time each year that had been included in the Julian calendar. (By then, that 11-minute mistake had compounded to 10 days; today, it's 13 days.) The Western Church (todav's Roman Catholics) and most of the western world adopted the Gregorian calendar. Not all Orthodox sects have stayed with the Julian model for Christmas. In 1924, many of the Orthodox churches Greece (outside of Jerusalem), Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Romania, Bulgaria and Cyprus adopted the Gregorian calendar. Many others, including the Serbian Orthodox, did not. For them, Christmas Eve began last night. Outside many churches, a branch of a young oak tree, signifying Christ's cross, was broken into pieces. Services began with prayers announc Brandon O'Bryan; dear sister of Adrienne O'Neill, Michael Blaskov-ich and Michelle Cindric. Friends received 7-9p.m. ONLY on Thur. at MAURICE L.

Churches and their elaborately painted and frescoed interiors full of icons were illuminated with candles and suffused with incense, while priests chanted prayers and bells rang. After receiving blessings last night for a year oT peace and prosperity, families returned home. At the Rev. Stevan Rocknage's home in McKeesport, his oldest son then brought straw into the house and placed some under a table. The priest's wife, Jo Ann Rocknage, tossed coins into the straw, which symbolizes the stable and manger, "for good luck in coming to Christ," said Rev. Rocknage, priest at the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church. This morning, the 40-day-long Phillip's, or Nativity, fast was broken with Eucharist during the Divine Liturgy service. Once home, many families will enjoy a meal of roast suckling pig or barbecued lamb. The celebration of Christmas is not the only calendar conflict. There is a 13-day difference between the Julian Orthodox churches and other Christian churches for every single feast day and celebration except Easter, which virtually all Orthodox celebrate according to the Julian calendar. Because of the vagaries surrounding how the Orthodox determine the yearly date, once every few years the Easter observances coincide for all the Christian churches. This year, the Orthodox will observe Pascha on April 4; the rest of Christendom will do so on April 11. The next time both will observe it on the same day is in 2001. The Eastern Orthodox have retained the Julian calendar, said Aristeides Papadakis, both a professor of history at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, because of the schism that already existed between them and the VVest-ern Church.

"I have no ill feelings toward anyone. I am glad everything has been worked out. Sometimes people make mistakes more than anyone, I know that." While Warnick praised God, Witold Walczak, director of the Pittsburgh ACLU, lauded Judge Robert C. Reed, the Beaver County president judge who sought out the ACLU to settle the lawsuit. Walczak said Reed was "wise and courageous" for admitting problems with his termination procedures and offering to settle the suit. On the day that suit was filed, the ACLU and two other lawyers also asked the state's highest court to reverse Reed's termination of the rights of Amanda Kolle of Carnegie to her 9-month-old son, William. That suit also alleges Kolle's constitutional rights were violated, but the ACLU and Reed did not address that suit in their settlement, and it remains before the Supreme Court. Kolle's son was given by a family friend to a Beaver County couple, Ronald and Deborah DeCostro of Center, to adopt. When the couple learned that Kolle wanted her son back, they asked Reed to terminate her rights. He did that Dec. 15. Walczak said Reed contacted the ACLU through an intermediary shortly after the suit was filed to determine if a settlement could be reached. That settlement calls for creation dith Winslow and her husband, Eric of Lewisburg, Rebecca West and her husband, Rev.

The committee, which is to include both Reed and Walczak, is to make the recommendations within 90 days.

The committee will establish rules for termination procedures, including giving parents notice of termination hearings, informing them of their right to a lawyer and telling them that their rights have been terminated and how to appeal. Reed did not attend the news conference yesterday, and he could not be reached for comment. He released a brief statement in which he said, "We are all only interested in protecting the rights of both parents and children and we intend to work toward that goal."

Friends received 2-4 & 7-9 rights to boys Reed would not discuss with the ACLU settling the Kolle case, and Walczak said just yesterday morning that he had received several more phone calls from Beaver County women who contended their rights were violated in termination cases, including one that Walczak described as "very serious." He said he hoped that now that the ACLU has a working relationship with Judge Reed those cases could be worked out as well. And, he said, he doubts the problems are unique to Beaver County, but that is the only place he has received complaints from. In Beaver County, there were 19 terminations in 1997 and 25 in 1998. Challenges have forced Reed to reverse two of those, and two more are being appealed. In Allegheny County, there were nearly 400 terminations in 1997 and nearly 500 in 1998. Max Baer, administrative judge for the Family Division of Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, said he did not know how many of them had been reversed. But, he said, he and the other juvenile section judges routinely overturn their own terminations if they feel there is a problem. For example, they would reverse their own termination if the parent showed up a half-hour after the hearing concluded and said she'd been delayed by a late bus. "We really try to insist that we cross every "t" and dot every "i" in every case," Baer said, "because with the exception of capital punishment, there is nothing worse you can do than take someone's child away." pm Thurs. at HEALY-HAHN FUNERAL HOME, 425 Grant Ave., Millvale.
