“…one of the hallmarks of our church life is its sacramental materialism. This is a normal outgrowth of our faith in the incarnation, in the invisible God entering human history in the flesh. He is born, lives, dies, rises again and ascends physically, thereby transforming our physical and material existence. This is why we venerate icons and relics and why our sacramental life involves all the senses.”
(Fr. John Jillions, OCA Chancellor) [Miracles; Faith]
