Hello all! 2 questions I need some help with:
A bit of background info:
Recently married and my wife was a non catholic.
Her parents were fully baptized and practising. She attended catholic school et all. But never received any sacrament. She was never baptized etc.
I have received all sacraments and we were married in my Catholic Church. We did not have communion though given my wife has not been baptized.
Brings me to my 2 questions regarding situations we now face:
Can my wife receive communion at mass now?
Can my wife be a godparent of our catholic friend’s children?
My assumption is that if you marry into the church or a fully catholic person in a Catholic Church you re catholic and thus obtain all the other sacraments that usually happen before it.
Pardon my ignorance. I have no facts to back it up and is a vague idea.
All in all my wife is happy to be married and we strongly believe and practise our faith and plan to raise our kids catholic as well.
Any answers or citations or links from canon law would help!
If there is any other information or a heads up to what she/we can or cannot do would be appreciated as well
