Why We Have “Closed Communion”

Often the Orthodox Church is criticized for practicing what is sometimes called "closed communion," which means only Orthodox Christians are permitted to receive the Eucharist.

And since we experience unity with one another at the chalice, the implications are enormous!

Christ is born! I'm so thankful for Ancient Faith Radio! We always recommend AFR to visitors to our parish. Many times in our adult classes, someone will say, "I was listening to a podcast . . ." My husband and I just celebrated the ninth anniversary of our chrismation, and even though we belong to a great (and growing!) parish with a wonderful priest, we can't imagine life without AFR. Congratulations on ten years. God grant you many, many more!
