Does anyone know where in the epistles/homilies of St. Severus I can find this (unsourced) quote that is attributed to the great patriarch?

"This is the Apostolic Faith, the Orthodox Faith, and the Faith of the Fathers. Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church"

It seems to be the words of Father Alexander Schmemann at the end of his homily here...

So it is falsely attributed to St. Severus? I wonder how a quote from a contemporary EO priest came to be attributed to him.

Well there is a possibility he was being quoted?

In the video below, this quote is attributed to St. Severus at around the 5 minute, 15 second mark:

Here is a favorite of mine:

"For how will anyone divide walking upon the water? For to run upon the sea is foreign to the human nature, but it is not proper to the divine nature to use bodily feet. Therefore that action is of the incarnate Word, to whom belongs at the same time divine character and human, indivisibly." - St Severus of Antioch

Sure. I sent the user a PM, but he hasn't signed in since June. Sad

The question about the background music in the comment section was mine. I wish I'd asked about the quote back then.
