Faith Issues / Re: How are the Saints words viewed in orthodoxy?
« Last post by WPM on Yesterday at 11:23:45 PM »
Could be useful reading if they were found in a prayer book or church letter.

It's probably not totally inaccurate for the time period.  Severely autistic kids are still sometimes denied communion if they don't understand the "meaning" of the sacrament.

Lutherans still have similar issues, though some in the ELCA and LCMS want to change this.

Why would that be?

After all, we give Holy Communion to infants...who certainly do not understand the "meaning" of the Sacrament.
RC's don't, it's just plain rationalistic exaggeration. IIRC the Latins had problems with EC's practicing infant communion.

Thank you for sharing your view. I appreciate it.

Nobody gets it "100% right," except the Lord.

Does this stand for the apostles, as well? Meaning, are we ever to question the words they spoke as possibly not being "100% right?"

May the Lord be merciful upon this family....forgiving the human frailty and weakness...and granting peaceful rest to all those involved.

May the Lord also help those who find themselves in financial difficulties....grant them assistance to turn the situation around with a positive outcome.

Lord, have mercy!
