The church without the Eucharist is not the church — interview with John Zizioulas

From a fascinating interview with Metropolitan John Zizioulas:

The Church of Greece will broadcast the Holy Liturgy via the Internet. Some in America will do the same. What is your opinion?

I don’t agree with the Divine Liturgy being transmitted by television. I’m confined to my home and will not be able to attend Liturgy. However, I will not turn the television on in order to watch the Liturgy. I consider that an expression of impiety. It is impious for someone to sit and watch the Liturgy.
