As is this:
Catholics do not believe in TWO distinct forms of revelation (Scripture and Tradition) but in one REVELATION (better: Revelator) with two forms of transmission.
— From Vatican II

Bishop Kallistos of Diokleia said the same only better: the Bible is part of Tradition.

Change even minor points of immemorial custom?
I can’t: I’m only the Pope!
— Pius IX

A quotation from the Eastern Orthodox point of view:
Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was Orthodox for a thousand years, and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies.
— St John of Shanghai and San Francisco
