Communion for my Anglican wife?


#1

My Jesuit Theolgian Professor said my Anglican wife can receive communion in the Catholic Church as long as she believes in Christ, that Christ is her salvation etc.
The local secular priest in my new parish denied her communion which she had previously received in this church, when he found out she was Anglican.
Who is correct , the Jesuit Theologian or the local parish priest.?

I posted this question over a month ago and still have not recieved an answer.

Dear friend,

Your parish priest is acting in obedience to the teaching of the Catholic Church on this matter. The theologian, alas, is not.

Fr, Vincent Serpa, O.P.
