    Can I, a Melkite, receive communion at an Antiochian Orthodox church

    Seriously the answer is no. I see no reason why this thread is 8 pages long. There isn't any argument because the church is clear on this. If you want to argue about what Mel kites are start another thread.  Username section moderator.

    To Vima - Holy Synod decides “the Roman Catholic Church is not a Church”

    Vatican 2 decided that outside of a few churches, the oo and eo for instance, that other churches should be called ecclesiastical bodies. So what's wrong with our patriarchs deciding on a perfectly valid teaching of our church? Nothing.

    Holy Hangover

    I went to matins and liturgy today. I am even still a little sick. I got up early too. I have no nap in my future. I went for the last 10 minutes of matins and of course the entire liturgy.

    Catechumen-soon to be Orthodox, asking important question

    I guess it doesn't matter what we think about the correct reception of converts because ultimately the bishop decides. No sense debating the history and practices.  It'll only confuse the op and his bishop already told him how he is to be received.

    Catechumen-soon to be Orthodox, asking important question

    The creed doesn't say one Chrismation for the remission of sin... Anyone can baptize in the name of the trinity, mostly applied to emergency baptisms. Hence probably why we accept trinitarian baptisms done by heterodox.

    Catechumen-soon to be Orthodox, asking important question

    The reason you get an annulment is because in the RCC the coupled performs the sacrament.  That's why a priest or deacon can witness the marriage. You can't say a sacrament is invalid because of the receiver or priest. The name eludes me but this is a condemned heresy in both Orthodox and RCC.
