Orthodoxy Revealed

‘When we approach the Church of Christ, when we open our soul and heart to her, the bright and vivid world of Orthodoxy is then revealed before us, a world that is characterized by the honour it accords to the saints of all ages, before and after Christ.

This remarkable aspect of Orthodoxy has a very deep meaning both for our faith and our lives, for by means of this living tradition we are kept in union with all the saints and the “family” of the faithful that have lived since the creation of man. This is the sweetest consolation that our Church gives us.’[1]
