A practicing Catholic will go to Confession when they know they are in mortal sin.
He isn’t insisting on me being Catholic or anything like that.
Dear Anthony, I could use some advice as the non-Catholic party in my relationship. Should I just save both of us a lot of time and grief and end it now, or is there some hope that we could actually get married even though we have two different religions? I have discussed matters that involve non-Catholics before, and I am very interested in the concept of mixed marriages and their potential to be successful.
It makes me nervous, because I don’t want to get so far in our relationship and then have heart broken because I won’t become Catholic.
A non-Catholic must accept that the person they love is pro-life and open to life, and believes contracepting is contrary to life and true love. Jesus Christ gave a new commandment and called all His followers to live it; “love one another as I have loved you.” This call to love is a call to love the unlovable, enemies, those who persecute you, those in need, those who won’t love you back.
A Catholic is ready to forgive and have mercy on those who wrong and hurt them. They are ready to sacrifice for the good or need of another.
A true Catholic attends Mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation.
The non-Catholic also supports the Catholic’s need to attend Mass every Sunday and is encouraging. The act of confessing mortal sins to a Catholic priest, being absolved of those sins, and performing the penance.
That makes it very easy to find people we get along with, share common interests, career goals, and are attracted to. Having sex is as commonplace and expected as dining together. If there is concern, there is fear and guilt about bringing it up.
This leads me to your concern about being involved with a Catholic.
If your boyfriend is a practicing Catholic, there will be several key things about his religion that he will be committed to that should give any non-Catholic concern when it comes to considering a Catholic as a prospective future spouse. Any Catholic worth their salt believes that Jesus Christ is truly present, body, blood, soul and divinity, in the Holy Eucharist.
That the bread and wine on the altar at a Catholic Mass is changed in substance (though not appearance) into the body and blood of Christ at the hands of the Catholic priest.
He might say he is Catholic, but he is not a practicing one.
