My father and I are both Catholics, though I am lapsed somewhat. :shrug:
We intend on going to mass tomorrow. I’ve just learned that my semi-Pentecostal mother and Pentecostal extended family are apparently coming with us to mass. They were all baptized as children, but now (they’re mostly in their 40s/50s) have been attending a Pentecostal church for more than 10 years.
I know the Catechism says that non-Catholics/non-Catholic Christians should refrain from receiving Communion because they are not in Communion with the Church. It bothers me a bit that they may have received Communion on occasions when they’ve gone to our local Catholic Church because they couldn’t make their own due to time constraints.
I was considering asking them not to receive Communion out of respect to the fact that they’re pretty much heretics (or are, but I wouldn’t necessarily say that * to them). I also don’t want to sound like a complete dck, especially since it’s Easter Sunday. What would you advise?
