Re: Old Believers and Old Calendarists

The Russian Orthodox Church has indeed been chrismating Roman Catholics, and even receiving some Catholics, especially those in the Eastern Catholic Churches by Confession of Faith and Communion. I spoke with an archimandrite in the Russian Orthodox Church under the MP back in 1995, and he was rece...

Re: Old Believers and Old Calendarists

Something else I thought of that makes for an interesting parallel between the Old Believers and Old Calendarism: after Patriarch Nikon's reforms, the Moscow Patriarchate started receiving Roman Catholics by chrismation rather than by baptism.

Re: More Churches in Early Byzantine Style!

Lucky I've always loved stained glass. Sadly, you can only really find them in pre Vatican II Roman Catholic Churches and some World Orthodox churches.

Re: Is the Patriarch seat empty?

Another excellent question, Justice! Catholics have Sedevacantists, who claim that the Seat of Peter is empty.
