"Every holy church is a piece of Heaven on earth. And when you are in church, look - you are already in Heaven. When the earth torments you with its hell, hurry to church, go inside, and behold - you have entered into Paradise. And if it happens that you are attacked by the entire legions of demons, then run to church - stand among the holy angels, and the angels of God will protect you from every demon of this world. And nothing will be able to hurt you. Do not forget, brothers: We, Christians, are strong by God. Who then can be stronger then us? No one, no one! St. Justin Popovic
"You cannot be too gentle, too kind. Shun even to appear harsh in your treatment of each other." St. Seraphim of Sarov
"It is better to be a simpleton and approach God with love than to be a learned man and at the same time an enemy of God." St. Irenaeus of Lyons
"Sometimes called the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church is the first Christian Church, the Church founded by the Lord Jesus Christ and described in the pages of the New Testament. Her history can be traced in unbroken continuity all the way back to Christ and His Twelve Apostles. For twenty centuries, she has continued in her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice. Today her apostolic doctrine, worship, and structure remain intact. The Orthodox Church maintains that the Church is the living Body of Jesus Christ."
