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.
