Other Sacraments and Blessings
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

The Orthodox Church has never formally determined a particular number of Sacraments.

Holy Unction
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Orthodoxy does not view this Sacrament as available only to those who are near death. It is offered to all who are sick in body, mind, or spirit.

Holy Orders
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

The Holy Spirit preserved the continuity of the Church through the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

Marriage
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Since Marriage is not viewed as a legal contract, there are no vows in the Sacrament.

Confession
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Confession is the Sacrament through which our sins are forgiven, and our relationship to God and to others is restored and strengthened.

Chrismation
Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Chrismation, which is often referred to as one's personal Pentecost, is the Sacrament which imparts the Spirit in a special way.

Baptism
Thursday, August 09, 2012

The Sacrament of Baptism incorporates us into the Church, the Body of Christ, and is our introduction to the life of the Holy Trinity.

Holy Communion
Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Orthodox Christians fully participate in the celebration of the Liturgy when they receive the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus in Holy Communion, as the Lord Himself commands (John 6:53).
