  1. You say that there is not one mystic in the Orthodox Church, for example on Mount Athos?

  2. The monks on Mount Athos just fight all the time amongst each other.

  7. Please don’t embarrass your self writing “Only the Catholic Church produces mystics”. Jesus don’t only belong to the catholics, the Orthodox Church is an equal part in the body of Christ!

    Don’t forget S:t Ephrem the Syrian, St: Jacob of Nisibis and Anthony the Great.

  8. The Orthodox church is not the same level as the see of Rome. The mystical body of Christ is the Catholic. To put them both on an equal footing is a serious error.
