We turn to the topic of the sacraments in our discussion of Orientalium Ecclesiarum.
The Sacred Ecumenical Council confirms and approves the ancient discipline of the sacraments existing in the Oriental Churches, as also the ritual practices connected with their celebration and administration and ardently desires that this should be re-established if circumstances warrant it.
The East, as you may know, administer marriage a bit differently than Rome. I suspect Eastern Church in communion with Rome labor with annulments instead of the limited acceptance of divorce when considering remarriage, as do the Eastern Orthodox. I suspect the oldest Christian practice, East and West, didn’t include annulments.
Any other Eastern sacramental issues about which anyone might wish to enlighten us?
