Dear Friends, I was married in the Catholic Church many years ago. After over 30 years of marriage I was divorced. I have two grown children in their forties.
My first wife recently passed away. Before my wife passed away I married a non-catholic who wishes to retain her faith (Methodist) and not become a Catholic.
My wife and I switch churches each Sunday, once to hers and once to mine. Is there anything I can do short of disavowing my first marriage (which I will not do) to receive holy communion?
Secondly, can my current non-catholic wife receive communion in the Catholic Church and/or can I receive communion in her Methodist Church?
Lastly, I was a First Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. May I once again partake in their festivities?
These questions have weighed heavily on my mind for several years and unfortunately, I have received a mixture of answers to these questions.
Please help and God Bless.
