I have a question on returning to the Church, and hope I’m posting in the right forum. I was baptized and raised Roman Catholic. Unfortunately I quit attending about three years ago. I since married, outside the Church, to a non-Catholic. I have been reading religious books, like the ones I read when I was actively practicing, and am preparing a confession. However, I was wondering, if I was to go to confession and work to stay in a state of grace, is that possible or would my marriage outside the Church make it so my confession was not good? Like walking out of the confessional but still being in sin because I am still married outside the Church?
I’ve been praying the Rosary the past few weeks and just finished Montfort’s Secrets of the Rosary, but reading how being in a state of sin praying the rosary is offensive to Mary, I was wondering on how to make everything right to start over again.
