I recently have returned to the Church after twenty years of being a non-practicing Catholic. During my time away from the Church, I was married to a non-denominational Christian in a civil ceremony. While she attempted RCIA, she still has difficulty in our belief that we’re actually receiving Jesus during communion at mass. I eventually believe she will come into the church through my prayers and God’s grace. We have a son that is almost two and another child on the way. We have agreed to raise both children Catholic and the first has been baptized in our current parish.
Should I consider getting my marriage dispensated at this point? Am I required to complete dispensation in order to receive holy communion, even though I have confessed my sins entirely?
Thanks and God Bless!!!
