I have a question:
I know three Catholics and all three of them are not Catholic in their beliefs…none of them believe in confession, none of them attend every sunday (one not for five years…) one does not believe in going to church at all…
and yet they all profess themselves to be catholic. My question is that when these three friends attend church they always take communion without confession.
I was wondering whether their priest would maybe feel uncomfortable giving them the eucharist without confession as he would in effect be allowing them to commit another sin.
Can a priest ever say ‘no’?
If not, why not? or visa versa
I just wondered…there would obviously be no issue if they were protestant, and i’m not siagreeing with them as people as they have their own views…Even though i understand them as friends i don’t understand them as catholics. It allconfuses me when i’m learning one thing about catholicism and then seeing another completely different thing.
