“Coming to know Orthodoxy, what it really is, we become balanced; we can see everyone affectionately. We are helped by everyone, and by the grace of God we help everyone. To become Orthodox does not mean to become somehow enclosed, but somehow to open ourselves up: to reach the heights of the cross of love.”
(Archimandrite Vasilios of Iveron, ‘The Holy Mountain’, John Sanidopoulos transl.)
