It is written that, although ‘schismatics’ sin, those who cause schism are to be judged more severely.
Tremble then, if you insult Holy Orthodoxy and break the hearts of the faithful, causing the little ones to fall.
As for me, I shiver when I hear the words:
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me,
it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck,
and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea
(Matthew 18,6).
Fr. Andrew Phillips, England
