"God is good. He
alone is truly and fully good. He is good without mixture of evil; in
Him all evils disappears. From Him comes all good. All that is good
not only comes from Him, but is also His presence. Where the good is,
there God is present.'' -Paulos Mar Gregorios
"Experience shows that the deeper we go into our respective religions,
the more clearly we find that basic love of God and love for all
humanity which should unite us all. The more rooted one is in one's own
tradition the freer and more secure one becomes in facing our fellow
human beings and finding our unity in God and in our shared
aspirations." -Paulos Mar Gregorios
