"During the dark ages of Orthodox Theology, our Church survived because of the richness of her liturgical life. If you understand our various liturgical services, you will understand the whole Theology of the Orthodox Church. While others talk about liturgical poverty and liturgical renewal, as Orthodox, we must concentrate our efforts on liturgical understanding." -- An Orthodox Hierarch

Athanasius and Cyril, Patriarchs of Alexandria (January 18)

With work of Orthodoxy, ye shone forth and extinguished wicked opinion, becoming triumphant and clothed with victory. And having enriched all with true worship, and adorned the Church with great adornment, Athanasius and wise Cyril, ye worthily found Christ God, granting to all, through your prayers, the Great Mercy. (Apolytikion in Tone 3)

Wisdom

"If you see your neighbor sinning, take care not to dwell exclusively on his faults. Try to think of the many good things he has done and continues to do. Many times when we do this, we come to the conclusion that our neighbor is a far better person than we are." -- St. Basil the Great
