Your comments seem to contradict the Code of Canon Law: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/__P41.HTM
Can you please explain?

By sayin that “no one tradition has an exclusing hold on GOD’S attention” means that the Catholic Church is not the ONE Apostolic Truth. You can’t have it both ways.

A close Catholic relative was married to a Christian non-Catholic man who is divorced. He did not want to get an annulment (probably due to a misconception of what this means), but was interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. The priest said that he could not marry them “in the Catholic Church”, but instead married them civilly in his private chapel in the presence of the Catholic parents of the bride. my husband, as the bride’s sister and I were expected to be present too. the priest blessed them, then they went to Mass the next day and received Holy Communion with the priest’s blessing. Our parish priest advised us that it would be seriously wrong to be witnesses to the wedding as the priest was acting in disobedience to the laws of the Church on marriage. The priest who married them felt he was being compassionate and doing the right thing for the couple as they were both seeking the truth and on a journey towards the Catholic faith. It did not seem to make sense for them to go to another denomination to get married. Our absence from the wedding together with an explanation of our reasons has resulted in a traumatic split in the family and unbearable hurt to the couple. The couple are now looking into changing their faith. this is very sad as my brother-in-law was very interested in becoming Catholic initially. My parents in law are devastated and the couple never want to see us again. please help clarify. This situation is so confusing. thank-you and God bless
