Non-Orthodox Mother Churching Infant?
« on: July 22, 2008, 12:01:30 PM »
Given the recent discussion on Infant Dedication where the Infant is considered a cathecumen from time of Churching until time of Baptism, does the same hold true for a non-Orthodox Mother who Churches an Infant in the Orthodox Church?

Mods, please move elsewhere if appropriate.   :)

How about Yes or No or Ask your Priest?  I believe the answer is also Yes.   ???

I don't think so, but "ask a priest" is a safer answer.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
