- Sep 5, 2003Exactly correct. If we haven't had a proper Orthodox baptism but were
received through Chrismation, we have to learn to "take it on the chin" and
move on. I think if we don't we really don't trust the Church. What about
instances where one was unable to fully prepare for Communion and the priest
tells you to just read three specific prayers? What about instances where
you are ready to confess every sin you can recall and the priest cuts you
off? These things have happened with me. Does this mean that my Communion
and Confession were invalid or graceless?

later ordained to the priesthood. I have never heard anything about
him having to be baptized *after* his chrismation so that he could be
ordained. Was he not "Orthodox enough" to be ordained? Metropolitan
Laurus has told me that if someone has been received by chrismation
and has been receiving Holy Communion, it is not proper to go back
and baptize them since they have already been living an Orthodox life.
