I’m getting conflicting information within the Church on my marriage. My wife and I were married in the Lutheran church while I was lapse. When I returned to the church I went to confession and was told by the priest that I was living in sin. While the church recognizes that I’m married, it at the same time does not. I have been told that I cannot recieve communion until my marriage is blessed by the church. In order to do that, my wife must agree to raise our children Catholic. Seeing as she is Lutheran, that’s not something she’s inclined to do. How much of this is true canon? I have been told by another priest that there is nothing wrong with it, another priest said there was no requirement for her to raise our children Catholic, only to agree not to impede me raising them Catholic. The vid on catholic answers implies that none of this is necessary. At some point my children are going to ask me why I don’t recieve communion and I’m going to have to tell them that our church does not recognize our marriage as valid. This seems so backward and arbitrary. Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.
