Catholicism & Orthodoxy

From the chapter in Laurus when Arseny visits a cathedral in Vienna:

“It makes a twofold impression, Arseny reports to Ustina from St. Stephen’s Cathedral. On the one hand, there is the sense of something kindred because we have common roots. On the other hand, I do not feel at home here: after all, our paths diverged. Our God is closer and warmer, theirs is higher and grander.”
