{Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew}Unrepeatable

“The purpose of the Church is not condemnation but liberation, not punishment but salvation. Every unforunate and tormented soul eagerly awaits to receive solace and consolation. The Lord embraces everyone without discrimination, because He sees in each individual the unique and unrepeatable image of God.”

— Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
