Now, why would you want to do this?

Did the Apostles give out ashes?

Is outrage!  ::)

Did the Apostles use prayer ropes or chotkis made by monks on Mt. Athos?

Is outrage  ;D  ::)!

Probably sheesh  :angel:

Yes.  And the apostles were re-baptized on Athos too, just to make sure the apostles received a proper baptism.

I always wondered where that whole re-baptism thing started.  Now I know.  I'll stop blaming the Russians and Old Calendarist Greeks ;D ;D.

(By the way, you gotta stop putting your replies in the same box as the post you're replying to--makes it really confusing as to who wrote what.)
