Here’s a snippet from the cathedral website:
We asked the bishop, in advance of the seminar, if there was a difference between historical and contemporary holiness.
“There aren’t essential differences, but there are differences in expressions and types of holiness — just as there are differences, for example, between saintly efforts (podvizi) during the time of martyrdom and the epoch of St Photius the Great,” Bishop Maxim explained.
“These differences relate to expressions and living conditions, as well as the mentality of people who live the Gospel and confront the challenges which stand in the way of personal togetherness with God,” he added, noting that at no previous time in history was there such an open “de-holification” of faith as there is today, driven by certain celebrities and media.
