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

With all do respect but Jesus said he’s a prophet from god just like Moses before him and Mohammad after him, jews know this fact and they worship god and they acknowledge Moses as a prophet sent from, same thing with muslims they worship god and they love Mohammad as a prophet only, they don’t pray to him or ask of him.. Why do christians make jesus a god and a son of god, also pray to him? He’s a man, (a great and wise man, a prophet), and its written in many bibles that jesus is a prophet from god he even said it him self (don’t pray to me but pray to god).. ps: Please don’t be offended by my comment I mean no disrespect, I’m dating a catholic girl.

The article was good; but did not comment at more than “rethinking or postponing” when both (groom and bride) are of practicing faiths.

He’s a devout Jew, and I am a devout Catholic – and knowing all of this God placed this blessing and sacrifice of love and care in front of us. As religion is so important to both of us, why did God interlaced our paths when He knows what harbors in our hearts and thoughts. More specifically, that He knows what best destiny is ours to fulfill? Why is He infusing happiness and struggle to these simple servants?

Needless to say, we both would like to experience parenthood; he wants to raise kids as Jews. I want to raise kids as Catholics.

If there are spiritual replies to these questions above, I am more than appreciative to you for taking time to write to me. I’ve implored our Lord to present His thoughts to him and I.

Thanks, agitated spirit….

Thank you so much father for your enlighting information. I married a non catholic almost 30 years ago and back then we too had to sign a declaration that we would raise our children catholic. My husband never had that problem. Even though he never converted over to Catholicism, he is a better Catholic than some people I know. Now, I am looking at my son and daughter who are both getting married next year to non catholic. My future daughter and son in law are already better Catholics than some. I always said when my husband was ready he would convert, but he doesn’t need to he already is. Bless you Father for all your work

Dear father, I am a Hindu and married to Catholic girl and recently we had a child. my wife wants him to grow as Catholic, I too doesn’t have any problem. We enquired a priest for giving baptism to our child. He said that first I should convert then only they can give baptism to my child. Is there any other way I can give baptism to my son without converting from my religion? Please help me father

Been a HIV positive is just like been through hell but EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. So amazing and i want to testify of the good work done by Dr.PEPOKO a very strong and powerful spell caster. Dr.PEPOKO has proved science and scientists wrong for believing and thinking that there is no cure for HIV AIDS but to be sincere this GREAT MAN is so real and powerful. I never thought that this spell will work but this GREAT MAN has proved it to me and it has worked and still working perfectly. My Name is Alex Eliana and i was diagnosed of the deadly disease called HIV AIDS in 2012 and i thought that is the end and there will be no hope. Speaking to anyone was always a problem because i was so worried and always in the state of unrest in fact i thought it was over until one blessed day when i was searching for help here on the internet, i came across a testimony about GREAT MAN on how he helped a lady who was HIV positive. At first i thought it was all a lie but i decided to give it a try since there was no option and, when i contacted this MAN he laughed and told me that, that is too small for him to handle but i was still in doubt, and he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he called me and told me that his gods required some Material in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me and he told me that it will cost only $700, I sent him the money because I could not find the Material. He bought the Material and prepared a cure for me, and instructed me on what to do and i OBEYED him completely as he told me. Then he sent a parcel to me through the courier delivery service. I paid for the courier service, I got my parcel, it was a holy water and a pure holy oil as described by GREAT MAN. I took the holy water and the holy oil and after taking it, he told me to go for check up but I was still in doubt and was so afraid to go for the test but i took a bold step and believed that it is well, and i believed all what he has done and all that he has told me. So i went to the hospital for the test it was so amazing, awesome and exciting what seems to be impossible became possible, the VIRUS disappeared completely from my system and I was tested HIV negative. Quickly I called him and told him what happened he congratulated me and today i am a happy man again the way things use to be. Don’t you think that this testimony is worth sharing? I promise to tell the world about him and i will keep sharing this testimony till the end because many people has died of AIDS and i want many people who believed that it is over to know that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND I WANT THEM TO GET HELP FROM THIS SPELL CASTER by contacting him on his email at pepokolovespell@gmail.com for your solution now. If you are hiv positive and you think that it is over i want to tell you that there is hope for you and if you truly and dearly value your life please contact him now. Thank you Dr.PEPOKO and May your good gods keep rewarding you for your good deeds.
