CHRIST IS RISEN! TRULY HE IS RISEN!

"It is impossible for someone to acquire a catholic knowledge of the spirit
except by being incorporated into the life of the Church. The entire
significance of the perseverance of Orthodoxy through the centuries lies
exactly in the numerical identity of the Church, in her uniquely catholic,
universal, and continuous existence, with an uninterrupted and continuous
hierarchical succession, with the performance of the mysteries, with the
communion of the faith, and by the action of the One Spirit and one grace in
all of these. This is none other than the unity of the Body of Christ, the
unity of the house of God, in which all who have fallen asleep in the faith
and piety presently live and dwell along with all the saints and holy
fathers."

St. Justin Popovich.
