“Christ our Lord has granted us the life of a multitude, of all people even, to become the content of our heart’s life. We receive this gift only in the Church of Christ, living and continuously becoming an image of Christ, through the Holy Mysteries and Virtues of the Holy Spirit. Hence also springs the sense of catholicity or all-embracing responsibility, for everyone and for everything, and for the salvation of all people, without which there is neither true Christianity nor true joy.” (Homily from Eleusa, Metropolitan Nahum of Strumica)
