this is 10% of the things i love about the church, i'm not posting everything, to leave space for others to post!
i love the teaching on how we can deal with suffering,
the crowd of witnesses (martyrs),
the Holy Communion (it should go on top, but it was the church's teaching that got me to the point of even considering taking Holy Communion). i also love the fact that it actually is the true Body and Blood of our Lord.
the love of the people,
the altar curtain,
taking shoes of for communion,
prostrations (on weekdays),
and the fact that i can walk into an orthodox church where i know no-one and join in.
ok i'll force myself to stop!
