our vision

"The Holy Spirit gives the Church her vision,
which comes from our identity in Christ as His Body.
This vision is identical with the
vision of all those who have gone before us
precisely because it is the same Body, with the
same vocation, mission, and identity: to be the
Body of Christ: the One, Holy, Catholic, and
Apostolic Church. Whenever we add elements to
that vision, we distort it, no matter how noble our
qualifications and agendas may be. Whenever we
subtract from or diminish it, we do likewise. If we
change the vision in any way, we exclude ourselves
from it and from the Body which it constitutes." Metropolitan Jonah +
