...which of course flows naturally and logically from the Orthodox understanding of what Sacraments in fact are.
Yesterday's epistle is actually quite relevant:
Now I say this, that each of you says, "I am of Paul," or "I am of Apollos," or "I am of Cephas," or "I am of Christ."
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?
I think that we are still at the level of the Apostle Paul's disciples.
"No, we are sons of St.Sava, we do not recognise the sons of St.Peter and Paul"
I am of st.Vladimir or I am son of St.Andrew or I am son of st. Efrem.
In the history of Christianity, among all the things which have been most emphatically stated, is that one must be in submission to the successor of Saint Peter in Rome in order to gain salvation.
This is quite quite different to those who say. "I am a son of Saint Patrick," "I am a daughter of Saint Thomas or Saint James," "I am a child of Saint Sava."
