Joseph of Volokolamsk on Leaving Mass Early

Mirror link

An Orthodox Lithuanian abbot Joseph of Volokolamsk spoke well when he said: "Know this, brethren: do not creep out of the church before the dismissal prayer, for he who exits from the divine chant or converses or whispers has been seduced by demons, as the Divine Scriptures bear witness."{1}
