We reject Renovationism, we keep Tradition. In the words of St Athanasius the Great: ‘We must not serve time, we must serve God’. Tradition is part of the identity of our Church, not an idea, but a way of life. Thanks to our adherence to Sacred Tradition, to prayer, fasting, confession and the liturgical cycle, we still have tightly-knit families and monastic life - our spiritual strength. Sacred Tradition is our churchliness, the spirit of the New Martyrs, who sacrificed themselves for the Tradition. Let us therefore be New Confessors and sacrifice ourselves for Sacred Tradition.

Its wealth included landed estates, flocks of sheep, and herds of cattle.
