Quote of the Week

"The church is love, expectation, and joy. It is heaven on earth; it is the joy of recovered childhood, that free, unconditioned and disinterested joy which alone is capable of transforming the world."

- Alexander Schmemann, 20th-century Eastern Orthodox theologian, from his book The Sacrament of the World

(Painting: "Interior of the Cathedral of Christ Our Savior in Moscow," by Fyodor Klages, 1883)
