Are you sure you want to be a Catholic? There are other religions that will accept this. You have to ask yourself, do you have faith in Catholic Teaching? Why do you want to hand out Communion? Does it make you feel elevated or do you do it out of the love of the Church and of Christ?
The first poster suggests the ‘scandal’ element involved. There are many who look at everything going on in the Church and if they find out that you as a person who hands out communion are dating a separated (not even divorced yet) man, they will assume many things. It will turn some people off to the Church, some may not even attend anymore because of what they see as hypocrisy.
My next question is, why is he divorcing his wife? Is it because of you o r did you meet him after he left his wife? And why is he out dating if he’s not divorced? The secular has taken over your faith.
The next question I have is can you marry him and receive the sacrament of marriage given us by the Church after he divorces? I’ve always thought that was not permitted because in the eyes of God, when two people marry it is forever unless that marriage was annulled and for good reason.
After all that has been said, I also have no right to judge you. You need to go by your informed conscience. That means you have to look up the teachings of the Catholic Church, what the Bible reads along with the CCC to have a truly informed conscience.
I’m divorced. I’m not old, but I’ve decided not to date because of my divorce. My ex husband still attends Mass, receives Communion, and dates a woman for the past eight years. Believe me, it’s not platonic. Our adult children see this. I don’t like it but I rarely say anything. I have told him that according to Church Teaching, he is committing Adultery. And as such, creating scandal.
This life is not forever. If we truly have faith, we believe in eternity. Eternity is a long time. I’ll forgo the fifteen minutes of happiness I may have on this earth and try to shoot for eternity.
