The Melkite Greek Catholic Church is a Catholic Church within the Greek variant within the Byzantine Rite within the Byzantine Great Tradition. The Divine Liturgy, customs, etc. were set about 500-600 AD.
The usual Divine Liturgy is the Divine Liturgy of Our Father among the Saints John Chrysostom. (He was born, baptized, and ordained in Antioch.)
The Divine Liturgy of Our Father among the Saints Basil the Great is celebrated on some special days.
The Divine Liturgy of Saint James is celebrated on his feast day, October 23.
The Liturgy of the Presanctified Species is used on those days of Great Lent when the The Liturgy of Our Father among the Saints Basil the Great is not used. The Liturgy of the Presanctified Species is really a Divine Liturgy, but a penitential service.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
