A Balance to Contagious Enthusiasm

East Currently Keeps Western Tradition


“Indeed, if the Orthodox Church claims to be the witness and custodian of the true Christian faith, in its original and undivided catholicity, it should not be limited ethnically and culturally.It should not project the image of being only an “Eastern” church. And actually, it recognizes and cherishes the traditions of the Christian West from before the schism. It venerates St. Hilary of Poitiers, SS. Leo, Gregory and Martin of Rome, St. Benedict of Nursia, St. Patrick of Ireland, and hundreds of others, as saints.” – Fr. John Meyendorff 1980 SVTQ
