...Would conversion from Latin Rite to Cambrian Rite really be that big of a deal, though? They're both Catholic Churches, and both are under the authority of the Pope... If anything, I'd say her parents are likely unfortunately fár more intolerant about her sexuality! Juan Martin Velez Linares 9:35, 4/22/2016 (CDT)
- my understanding is that like anything that involve religion, some people have a very definite view of what is the right way to worship. In that sense, going from a traditionalist rite to a more liberal one can be perceived as a rejection of her parents and what they stand for.--Marc pasquin 11:44, 22 April 2016 (PDT)
zahir use of thee term "conversion" in this context is the right one. Although uniate church are in communion with the latin rite, catholics are expected to participate in other rites' worship only if there is no clergy of their rite where they live. For that reason, she would only be accepted in the cambrian church by converting.
- I cannot find any evidence of the above expectation on the Internet--would you happen to have a link to where you found out about that? If conversion between rites is at least a possibility, I suppose I don't have a problem with it. Juan Martin Velez Linares 13:44, 27/4/2016 (CDT)
- this page might help clarify things:
- he uses the term "transfer" while another uses "change" but regardless of the term use, the process to change rite is a formal one that requires a formal request sent to, originally, the holy see itself but now according to most site, the prospective rite's bishop who will in turn communicate the request and reason for it to the current rite's bishop. If the request is accepted by both, the person is then formaly accepted into the rite. The person doe not have to retake any of their sacraments but sign some documents in front of witnesses and are then entered into the parish roll.--Marc pasquin 18:17, 27 April 2016 (PDT)
