“Every member of the Church must take an active part in it – some by personal podvig [struggle], spreading the Good News, some by material donations and service to “the needs of the holy persons,” and some by profuse prayer to the Lord that He “keep His Church firm and multiply it” – and concerning those unaware of Christ, that He would “proclaim the word of truth to them…”

(St. Tikhon of  Moscow, homily)
