Quote of the day

"So often in our utilitarian society we use people and produce things for personal advantage. Liturgy, on the other hand, as we see from the Acts of the Apostles, calls us to be 'of one heart and one mind,' and enables us to see beyond a utilitarian mentality to a new way of living where no one is ‘used’ and no product produced, rather, a person is encountered, and that person is Christ Jesus, and as Saint Paul says, 'Him crucified.' (1 Cor 2:2)"

— Bishop Gregory J. Mansour, Bishop of the Eparchy of St. Maron of Brooklyn, "On Liturgy and Prayer."
