"During the dark ages of Orthodox Theology, our Church survived because of the richness of her liturgical life. If you understand our various liturgical services, you will understand the whole Theology of the Orthodox Church. While others talk about liturgical poverty and liturgical renewal, as Orthodox, we must concentrate our efforts on liturgical understanding." -- An Orthodox Hierarch

(Apolytikion in Tone 4)
