[quote=Sancti]I am in a relationship right now and he is a protestant. He wants to know why I have to celebrate mass in the Catholic Church.
I’d reconsider the relationship. If he is making these demands now, what demands is he going to make after you get married?
Will he allow you to get married in the Catholic Church? Will he allow you to baptize and raise the children in the Catholic Church?
He had made it know that he wants you to leave the Catholic church after you get married.
If he can’t respect your faith, what else doesn’t he respect?
[quote=Sancti]He says that when we get married we all need to go the same church and when I take part in communion I can just believe in the Eucharist.
On this point, agree with him…tell him he can wait in the pew while you and the children receive the Eucharist.
[quote=Sancti]I know this is completely in sane but I need some references for explaining why!
**2181 **The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused for a serious reason (for example, illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their own pastor. Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.
