The Reform of the Sacraments of Initiation

in the

Syro-Malabar Church

: Impact and Implementation of OE 12-141


Joseph Alencherry

The initial part of Orientalium Ecclesiarum (1-11) focuses mainly on certain ecclesiological and canonical issues, and the articles that follow (OE 12-23) deal with sacramental and liturgical disciplines. This latter set of articles starts with the rules regarding the Sacraments of Initiation, particularly in OE 12-14. This study concentrates on these three articles of OE, and its impact and implementation in the Syro-Malabar Church.
