"It is necessary to be careful not to identify the Orthodox Church, the Mother-Church, with the Eastern Churches. The one is universal, the others are limited geographically, culturally, ritually:   they are local". And Monseigneur John adds:  The West must never forget to discern within the Orthodox Church that which is universal from that which is local. If one desires that ones joining be organic, stripped of that which is exotic and artificial, it is necessary that one ‘make oneself Orthodox' and not to the point of ‘making oneself Eastern."
