Full Question

Is the sacrament of penance valid in the Greek Orthodox Church?

Answer

Yes. The Greek Orthodox Church has a valid line of apostolic succession and therefore has valid sacraments. Catholics, however, should go to confession only within the Catholic Church unless they are in danger of death or do not have access to a Catholic priest.
