I HAVE A QUESTION
Recently a priest told me that at a wedding Mass in which one spouse is Catholic and the other spouse is not, the non-Catholic spouse may receive the Eucharist provided that non-Catholic spouse is validly baptized. The priest said that the bishop of his diocese had approved it.
Has anyone else heard of this? Does Canon Law give the bishop the authority to permit this?
I somehow thought that reception of the Eucharist was conditional on believing in Real Presence. Has that changed when I wasn't looking?
Actually, that was three questions, I guess.
