John Chrysotom

“But I’ve never made an idol … nor set up an altar nor sacrificed sheep nor poured libations of wine; no, I come to church, I lift up my hands in prayer to the only-begotten Son of God; I partake of the mysteries, I communicate in prayer and in all other duties of a Christian. How then … can I be a worshiper of idols”?

--John Chrysostom, 4th Century Patriarch of Constantinople
