Topic 274 of the Catechism

of Saint Philaret of Moscow, Russia (+1867)

November 19

“You are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;” (Eph. 2:19-20).
