Young people must be made to distinguish between
helpful and injurious knowledge, keeping clearly in mind the Christian's
purpose in life. So, like the athlete or the musician, they must bend every
energy to one task, the winning of the heavenly crown.
+ St. Basil the Great
With melody ["sweet singing"], the Church adds depth
to what is spoken, through which the music reveals, to the extent possible,
the message within the text. It is with this relish, as if with sweet meats,
that savor is imparted to the food of lessons.
+ St Gregory of Nyssa
The saints, during their earthly life, are filled
with the grace of the Holy Spirit. After their departure the same grace
remains in their souls as in their bodies. The very same grace is present
and active in their images and icons.
+ St. John of Damascus
