"The Divine Liturgy is truly a heavenly service on earth, in which God Himself, in a particular, immediate and most close manner is present and dwells with men, for He Himself is the invisible celebrant of the service; He is both the Offerer and the Offering.  There is on earth nothing higher, greater, more holy, than the liturgy; nothing more solemn, nothing more life-giving.”
