Archbishop Charles Chaput told me HIMSELF, in an email, that if my husband doesn’t get his first marriage annulled, I’m stuck, unless he dies before I do. He said the Pope made that rule.
There’s at least one other person in my old parish in the same predicament. [i:321wfvht]We[/i:321wfvht] get punished because we married non-Catholics who were married in non-Catholic religious ceremonies.
Would Jesus have withheld himself from us? I doubt it.
