: I have few general question regarding the Greek Orthodox religion in particular some rituals which I have yet to understand fully. I am Roman Catholic and my wife is Greek Orthodox.
: Why must a mother of a new born wait forty days before re-entering the church?
: Why must a baby not leave the house for forty days?
: After the forty days have passed, what ritual/ceremony must the mother preform to re-enter the church? If the new born is to be christened Catholic, must he or she attend the mother's ceremony?
: I would appreciate somebody shedding light on these questions, as I have been getting contradictory responses.
