Just the norm

…to say that holiness then [the time of the early Church] was the norm is possible only in the sense that holiness for the Church is the norm for all times. One shouldn’t idealise this or that historical period, even the period of the early Christian communities. For a more down-to-earth view of that period, it is enough to reread the New Testament Epistles and the book of Revelation.
Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov)
