A Theological Comparison of Patmos and Sinai

Monastery of St. John the Theologian at Patmos

"When I compare Patmos to Sinai, I set the former as far above the latter, and account it first, as I set grace above the shadow, truth above appearances, the spirit above the letter and the Gospel above the Law of the Tablets."

- St. Christodoulos the Wonderworker of Patmos
