Sacramental Validity

The Journey to Antioch (Part XV) This Is Life!: Revolutions Around the Cruciform Axis:
"The sacraments are not “genuine” simply because one can trace a tactile succession of the episcopate. The Orthodox Mysteries are “genuine” because they spring from the life of Christ himself, the life he gives to his Body the Church, and which the Church, then, may, as a living organism, give to the various members which that Body is."
