Tradition

Home Icons Worship

The musical Fiddler on the Roof talked about "tradition" as the underpinnings of what we do and how we do it, sometimes without even knowing why we do it. In a sense, that's a good working definition. Tradition, for the Eastern Catholic, is a way of life. Who we are as Eastern Catholics is partly cultural, partly religious, and partly personal.

Tradition helps to define us for it places us in the context of a Christian peoples worshipping in a particular way. It helps us to find a place in the world that is both meaningful and fulfilling.
