A volume of Made Perfect in Faith

“In the Orthodox Church, we often speak of ‘the Holy Church Fathers.’ We quote their words in sermons, commentaries, essays, and books. We regard them as the preëminent interpreters of Holy Scripture. We study their lives. We celebrate their memories on their Feast Days throughout the year. We pray for their intercession before God. Their teachings and example, set upon the foundation of the Holy Gospels, form the structure of the Orthodox way of life and the Orthodox worldview.”
