Can man really know God? The Church has always taught God is present in His sacraments, through which He pours his Divine Love into us. By participating prayerfully in the Holy Mysteries, our spirits are mystically united with Christ.
Through Baptism we die to our old selves, and are reborn into the eternal life of Christ. Through Chrismation we are united with the Holy Spirit. This involves a radical change to our whole being... we reorient our lives away from our narrow selves, and towards God's Love.
Christ clearly told us that unless we eat his body and drink his blood we have no life. Learn how all of the early teachers of the church took this teaching as it was meant, literally, and how we maintain it to this day. Learn how the Holy Eucharist transforms us, and how God's Energies are mingled with our own souls.
The titles of Bishop, Priest and Deacon are given in Holy Scripture. These offices guarantee the continuity of the teachings of Christ and the Apostles.

Confession has been part of Christian practice since the ancient Church. Learn how sincere repentance before God is an integral part of the process of "theosis", the realisation of our Divine Nature.
Learn about the Holy Mystery of Anointing, which the Church uses to bring the Grace of healing. Many miracles of healing are given by the Church, but the Church holds the highest form of healing to be our union with God.
