But would non-mainstream or OO allow you to partake is the question that is being left out.

Many OO jurisdictions would.

Christ is present in the same way in the Catholic Eucharists as He is in the Orthodox one. He sanctify you, not the pope.

You seem to have done a 180 on this issue. See reply #9 in this thread:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,30972.0.html

You said that there are no Sacraments outside the Church.

[EDIT]: Oops, I just noticed that the post I am responding to is significantly older than the one I just referenced.

So then it would seem that you changed your mind towards realizing that the "Catholics" do not have the Eucharist?

Catholic only. I know that the other Apostolic Churches (EO, OO, or Assyrian) would not want to give me communion. NOthing wrong with that. Its their bliefe system.
If you were unable to speak or move, I'd tell the Priest that you had requested Chrisimation.  :D

LOL  :laugh:

I get a little nervous with the Assyrian Churches though.

LOL. As well you should.

I guess what it boils down to is, if someone is about to die and they are just frantically trying to get communion, it might do them better to just confess their sins.
Would an Orthodox priest accept the confession of a dying Roman Catholic?

Speaking for myself personally, I could not refuse to hear a dying man's confession and nor could I refuse to pray that God would forgive his sins and receive his soul into eternal life.   The question as to whether that prayer is "sacramental" properly belongs to God, whether He looked upon my prayer for forgiveness as something in the nature of a sacrament or not.

You know how Priests often hear the confessions of catechumens and bless them but do not absolve?

Which would you do in this case?

The same.  I would hear the confession of a catechumen who asked, pray to God for forgiveness, without an epitrakhil.

Yep. Like I said, I didn't realize how old it was until that edited segment.

Actually you could get communion in the Assyrian Church with no problem at all and in fact one of their bishops participated in the consecration of his Eastern Catholic counterpart a few years back if memory serves me correctly.

The Armenians and Indians would give you communion as well in certain circumstances.
Fantastic. Then if an Armenian or Indian Orthodox would offer me communion and no Catholic Priest could give it to me in time then I would take it from one of these Churches. I get a little nervous with the Assyrian Churches though.

I understand that you are in communion, through the Chaldean Catholic Church.  The Vatican has approved intercommunion.
