God, Man, and the world have always been, and are still today, the constant unchanging focus of humankind's spiritual concerns, marking the civilization which the people of the globe have inherited with its own particular features.
But it has been Christianity, able to rise above those persistent concerns through the ages, that has revealed the true relationship between God, Man and the world, and has clothed it in the Greek language and with Greek ideas.
As we view Christianity's progress in the world, two thousand years after the incarnation of God the Word, we can see very clearly that the holy fountain of all Christendom has always been Orthodoxy.
Developing impressively in the Eastern regions of the then civilized world, where the strata of humankind were fertile in religious visions, Orthodoxy was to give shape and definition to its spiritual majesty through the thousand years of the Byzantine Empire, in order that it might live out its glory to the present day -a glory steeped in the blood of the Cross.
