eastern and oriental orthodox
Regarding the questions posed by Fr Gregory, I think that John has given a succint reply to all of them.
Regarding question 5, whether we Oriental Orthodox Christians accept the
Eastern orthodox Sacraments as valid, I would like to reiterate what I have said elsewhere, namely that the Syrian Orthodox Church will commune anyone who has been baptised into an accepted Apostolic Church, which means that the Sacrament of Baptism in Eastern Orthodoxy is definitely accepted. The fact that Oriental Orthodox Christians seek to be communed by Eastern Orthodox Churches in places where no Oriental Orthodox Church is available shows that we accept their Sacraments as valid.
For me the main question is still, why at one level do the Eastern Orthodox accept our Orthodoxy as legitimate, explicitly stating that we are
not Monophysite heretics when, at another level we are refused communion because we are ..... Monophysite heretics?!
