Fr. Ilie Moldovan talks about Holy Eucharist as it is perceived in Orthodox Christianity:

“We don’t have God only in the conceptual sense of the word… In our Christianity, especially Orthodox, we have God in a so real way that we consume God. We eat God, look! Perhaps this expression could be slightly improved: not only we consume God, but He consumes us…”

Fr. Ilie († 2012) was a renowned professor of Morals at the Faculty of Orthodox Theology in Sibiu, Romania.

      All the videos on this website have English subtitles, but on some mobile devices the subtitles just won’t show up… If it’s the case try using a tablet or PC instead… It’s a kind of a bug…
