From the Desk of Mar Melchizedek
When anyone desires to be received into the Orthodox Church, thorough investigation must be made to determine the status and validity of his or her former Baptism and Chrismation (Confirmation). If the former Baptism and Chrismation (Confirmation) is deemed valid (as in those churches which have preserved apostolic and sacramental succession), then he or she shall be received by the Profession of Faith and Sacramental Absolution. If he or she has been baptized but not chrismated, Chrismation and Profession of Faith should be administered. If there is any reasonable doubt about the validity of his or her former baptism, Profession of Faith, conditional Baptism, Chrismation, and Sacramental Absolution should be administered. If it is sure that Baptism had not been conferred at all or conferred improperly, he or she must be baptized first.----- Original Message -----From: mor_efraim@...Sent: Wednesday, May 23, 2001 05:37Subject: [SORForum] BaptismShlomo,
