Can I go to a Jewish wedding?


#1

My cousin, who does not actively practice her Jewish faith, is having a Jewish wedding in a few weeks. As a Catholic, should I be attending this wedding? I know that my uncle would be hurt if I did not attend, but I am more concerned about hurting Jesus.


#2

Why would you think it would "hurt Jesus" if you attended a Jewish wedding? Scripture itself indicates that he did so himself at least twice: once, at the wedding of Cana; prior to that, his own parents' wedding, when his Mother, the Blessed Virgin, married his legal father, St. Joseph.
