Greek orthodox and Ukrainian Eucharist


#1

Everytime that my family pass a Catholic church we bless ourselves following the old Catholic custom.
But in the city that we live we also have a Greek orthodox Church and a Ukrainian church,should we be blessing ourselves then when we pass.
In other words does the Catholic church recognise their Eucharist as the real presence.

Yes, Greek and Ukranian Orthodox Churches have valid sacraments.


#3

Yes, but is the Sacrament reserved therein? That is why we cross ourselves when passing Catholic churches.

I make the sign of the cross when I pass any Christian Church, not because I endorse all they believe and teach but in honor of Jesus's prayer "Father that they might be one".
