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.”

The Writer’s Life

The question is not whether you can do it once. The question is not whether you can do it every now and again. The question is not whether you can do it when the Spirit leads you.

The question is whether you can do it over and over again, every week, every month, every year, for the rest of your life.
