Advent Retreat with Fr. Michael Oleksa at Holy Trinity GOC

+ + +

Come, all Orthodox Churches, let us celebrate today in faith and true worship the yearly commemoration of the divinely-arrayed Fathers who gathered at Nicea from throughout the world!  There they refuted the godless teaching of Arius, banishing him from the catholic Church by a decree of the council.  They taught all to confess openly the Son of God, consubstantial and co-eternal with the Father, proclaiming this with precision and true worship in the Symbol of Faith.  Therefore, as we faithfully follow their divine doctrines, let us worship the Father, the Son and the most Holy Spirit, the consubstantial Trinity in one Divinity!  (from Vespers)
