Very Rev. Leonid Kishkovsky
President of the National Council of Churches USA, 1990-1991

Orthodox Church in America

"Orthodox Traditionís role in the life of the Church is primarily the Holy Spiritís witness to Christ. As a sign and expression of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Church, Tradition gives to us freedom in Christís Truth. It liberates Orthodox Christians from ideological or intellectual or spiritual captivity."
