THE SILVER SERIES: VOLUME 3
"Tradition is everything that pertains to Christ, beheld in the light of the Holy Spirit."
"The living experience of the Church is Tradition. There aren't two different sources, therefore, but a single source that has been expressed both in writings and in the entire life of the early Church."
"Clearly, the Church as she appears in the Holy Scriptures cannot be simply identified with the institution. To be sure, she possesses an institutional, visible aspect, in the organization of parishes, of dioceses, in the liturgies she celebrates from generation to generation, and so on. But the Church, like her Lord, is of two natures. Just as Christ is both God and man, so the Church possesses a double nature, both human and divine."
Fr. Cyril Argenti was a monk and a priest. Born in 1918, of Greek parents, he served the Orthodox community in Marseille, France, for over 40 years. He founded the parish of St. Irenaeus, took part in ecumenical dialogue and devoted much of his time to serving the poor. He passed from this life on the Feast of the Presentation of the Mother of God in the Temple, 21 November, 1994.
