THE SILVER SERIES, VOLUME 6
"An Ecumenical Council is one by which the Holy Spirit speaks to the Churches."
"As long as the Church is not confronted with heretical views, there is no need for theological definitions or dogmas. The truth makes itself known naturally, intuitively, even to the uninstructed. We simply live the teachings of the apostles, made known to us through Scripture and the liturgy, and thereby we are "orthodox". But once heresy appears, some doctrine that distorts the truth or deforms the image of Christ we have received from the apostles, then the Church must react."
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.
