Confession of an Orthodox Christian

"I open my heart and my hands to a warm embrace to all the schismatics and heterodox my brothers, that want to come to Orthodoxy and I pray for them.

I will not though permit to anyone ever, according to my ability, to alter or tear the unwoven garment of my Church.

You, my Lord Jesus gave your precious Blood for her. Here, I am ready, give me Your grace to defend her. Light the fire of my humble soul for the Cross and the martyrdom. Amen."


Read the complete powerful confession of faith from the Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Paracletos in Abbeville, SC.
