"Closed Communion" in the Eastern Orthodox Church

Howdy y'all!

 For any who would like to know why non-Orthodox cannot commune (receive the Eucharist), here is a great Youtube response by one of our very own priests.  Wonderful information, Father!

Excellent video, I had never seen Father George's youtube channel before.  He seems to have several other excellent videos, they're pretty good refreshers about Orthodoxy for those of us who have forgotten or just didn't know much about it. 
Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith; Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity
