One should always remember that living the sacramental life of the Church means more than having been Baptized and/or Chrismated as an Orthodox Christian. It means that one participates in prayer and fasting regularly, goes for Holy Confession from time to time, and attends the Divine Liturgy regularly (including regularly receiving Holy Communion). In most cases, individual Orthodox Christians indeed faithfully attempt to live this way. However, there are also certain impediments to receiving the sacraments. Under such cases, one cannot receive Holy Communion; nor can they serve as either a Godparent in a Baptism, or as a Koumbaros in a Wedding; nor - if the matter is not resolved prior to their passing - can they have a priest read a blessing over them when they die. When one is an Orthodox Christian, they are responsible to live as an Orthodox Christian within the sacramental life of the Church. Such impediments include marriage outside of the Orthodox Church, separation (with no intention of reconciliation) or civil divorce of a couple that had been married in the Church, or in some other way living in opposition to the Holy Canons of the Church. Still, in almost every case, there are appropriate ways to return to the sacramental life of the Church. For this reason, Father George should be contacted for appropriate guidance in these circumstances.
