"Today the concept of truth is viewed with suspicion, because truth is identified with violence. Over history there have, unfortunately, been episodes when people sought to defend the truth with violence. But they are two contrasting realities. Truth cannot be imposed with means other than itself! Truth can only come with its own light. Yet, we need truth. ... Without truth we are blind in the world, we have no path to follow. The great gift of Christ was that He enabled us to see the face of God".Pope Benedict xvi, February 24th, 2012

The Church is ecumenical, catholic, God-human, ageless, and it is therefore a blasphemy—an unpardonable blasphemy against Christ and against the Holy Ghost—to turn the Church into a national institution, to narrow her down to petty, transient, time-bound aspirations and ways of doing things. Her purpose is beyond nationality, ecumenical, all-embracing: to unite all men in Christ, all without exception to nation or race or social strata. - St Justin Popovitch

Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in HD (click title)

 Well done recording of a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in 3 parts of the visit of Bishop Matthias to St Innocent Orthodox Church in Olmsted Falls, Ohio. Includes preliminary prayers with Liturgy proper starting about 6:00 minutes. This recording gives highlights and has some breaks in it, not giving the entire service
