THE SILVER SERIES, VOLUME 5
"By now there are Christian communities in every country around the globe. There are Chinese Christians, French Christians, Russian Christians; there are Christians in America, in Africa... and yet the Church has always seen herself as One."
"Local diversity of culture and language is not only inevitable, but legitimate, and even enriching. Having Christian neighbors with whom we cannot commune for lack of a shared understanding of the Word of God and the Bible, however, is not an enriching form of diversity but a kind of division that we must avoid taking for granted and instead consistently seek to resolve into a unity of faith."
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 Presentation of the Mother of God in the Temple, 21 November, 1994.
