Wisdom from the Fathers - St Cyril of Alexandria

      “The Church is the holy city which ha not been sanctified by observing the Law - for the law made nothing perfect (Hebrews 7:19) – but by becoming conformed to Christ: participating in the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4) through the communication of the Holy Spirit who stamped us with His seal in the day of our deliverance when we were washed from every stain and freed from all iniquity.”

- St Cyril, as quoted in The Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church by Vladimir Lossky
