Well, it didn't take long for this thread to veer off course. :P

^ Right.  So it would be a formality.  I'm not implying that formalities have no meaning, but it's not as if his time in the laity would be substantial (or much over 24hrs).
In most juristictions anyway, I suppose I'd expect him to be ordained to the priesthood shortly after. Although my former bishop, IIRC, was an Anglican priest who converted, and had to reattend seminary before he was ordained Orthodox.

The Spirit has descended!
Proud citizen and subject of the Papal States!

Long live our sovereign, the Bishop of Rome!




Nice Photoshop. Ratzinger would never wear the tiara. He's a modernist.
LOL. I was waiting for someone else to notice the incongruity.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

No Anglican/episcopalian cleric has ever been received into Orthodoxy  as having orders.

Never said as much. However Protestant clergy have been accepted and ordained immediatly as clergy, which is what this dialogue has been about.

Not the start:
...but if Abp. Rowan was received into Orthodoxy, it would be as a layman.

Why would this be, if others are allowed to make guided transitions into the clergy?  Would it be a formality?
Which was answering this:
I know that according to the Orthodox diptychs of the Catholic Church, he is not, but he is a bishop of Rome, if we are going to use that title for all ecclesiastical communities. Like we call the Episcopalian bishop of Chicago "a bishop of Chicago." Just not a bishop of Chicago like the 3(?) Orthodox bishops of Chicago (we have more, but the others have their titular sees elsewhere).

According to your Ecumenical Patriarch, His All-Holiness Bartholomew, Benedict XVI is "His Beatitude, the Bishop of Rome." Not "layman of the Vatican", as you would prefer to call him. If you have a problem with that, take it up with His All-Holiness, not with me.  :)
Many Protestant clergy, even Baptist, have been ordained nearly immediately after being received.  But they have to be ordained: no Orthodox Church has ever recognized Protestant "orders." It is not, for instance, like Protestants' marriages being received when they are. (In fact, the Antiochian archdiocese requires converts to be remarried with the Orthodox service before ordination).

I said dialogue, not conversation.  ;)
Certainly the conversation started otherwise.

What do you mean by "modernist" and what makes you think His Holiness is one? I've understood that his Catholicism is fairly traditional.

Was reading about internet "memes" and found this:

Europe according to the Vatican... Kind of funny...

Warning, it is not politically correct, and may offend some.

Love it!

He's not infallible, so they can throw out anything he says whenever what he says is inconvenient.  ;)

Given that he is leader of only a small percentage of Orthodox Christians, what he says, though valuable, is not the final word.

An interesting comment you make though, your pope is supposedly infallible yet Catholics are always throwing out anything he says that is inconvenient.

Nice job exposing your total ignorance of the dogma of papal infallibility. Time Magazine or the New York Times or the ravings of a guy at the water cooler are not the best sources for clearing up this ignorance.  ::)

You're awfully optimistic.

I don't know what Time Magazine or the New York Times say about Papal Infallibility; but I did spend a lot of time on the Catholic Answers Forum (catholic.com), and you would not believe the amount of ignorance among Catholics concerning P.I.

I love these maps.  ;D

Me too. It almost always says more about the author than anyone else though.
