The substitute priest in our parish is also the pastor of or Chaldean Catholic “parish” (I use quotes there because they are a parish as a community, but they don’t have their own parish building. They share space with a Roman Catholic Parish).
I knew there was something different in the way he does things. The most obvious was after distributing Communion, he stays where he is, raises the chalice, says a short prayer silently, then slowly bring it down and kisses the chalice.
I found out he was Chaldean when I approached him about my child’s baptism. Because our pastor suddenly left for vacation and I cannot change the date because I have out-of-town family flying in for the date. Then he explained he didn’t know how to baptize in the Latin Rite. I have since attended Holy Qurbana at his parish.
