The Ecumenical Throne

…has value and usefulness only when it sheds abroad upon all the earth the sweet and unsetting light of Orthodoxy. Lighthouses are useful if and as long as they light the way for those who travel on the sea to avoid the reefs. When their lights is extinguished, then they are not only useless but harmful, for they are themselves transformed into hazards.
Archimandrite Epiphanios (Theodoropoulos)
