“We look around and see that many Orthodox people are simply, totally worldly and do not think about the higher side of their Faith. They take it for granted. ‘It’s all automatic. That’s what has been handed down. There’s always a priest somewhere. If he’s not in this town, he’s in the next one. He has sacraments and Holy Communion. We just go to him and get what we need and that’s all….’ You go home and you’re satisfied…”
