      Exactly 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?

      In Christ,

      Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose) of Platina was received by chrismation and
      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.
