Top Secrets Most Catholics Don’t Know About the Catholic Church (But Should!)


5. Annulments Are Not Catholic Divorces 

Unlike the legal process known as “divorce” (in which a marriage is terminated), a declaration of nullity (annulment) states that a valid marriage never existed. This decision is based upon the finding that on the day that marriage vows were exchanged, some essential elements were lacking. This process is completely in conformity with the Catholic teaching regarding the indissolubility of marriage. Incidentally, the granting of an annulment does not render children illegitimate.

6. In Vitro Fertilization Is Morally Unacceptable

Many Catholics suffering from infertility utilize this process in the hopes of conceiving children, while remaining unaware that the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) declares it “morally unacceptable”(CCC 2377). In the Vatican Instruction, Donum Vitae, the Church states “…in conformity with the traditional doctrine relating to the goods of marriage and the dignity of the person, the Church remains opposed from the moral point of view to homologous ‘in vitro’ fertilization. Such fertilization is in itself illicit and in opposition to the dignity of procreation and of the conjugal union, even when everything is done to avoid the death of the human embryo.”

    I believe you can receive communion. If you have a new partner then you can not. There is a bit more to it. Talk to your parish priest.

  3. I always believe That Holy Roman Catholic is the religion Of Salvation in the belief of The Holy Trinity of God the Father,the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.So my question is what happened to the noncatholic during judgement day.Will noncatholic go to heaven.No wonder God the Father is not happy.When i start my devotion to prayers i always include praying harder to those coming back to God to make God happy.I will pray that all mankind will have the same faith to make it simple.When i listened to youtube channels were there are young pastors who dont believe in The existence of Jesus and these multiple ministries are being paid money to exist.Do you think God is happy about this. I wonder what these young pastors are teaching in their churches.And what about their gross earnings at the end of month.Are they donating half to charities to make God happy?There should be only one Faith to God so it will be less complicated.I will harder for this.

  4. John, not true at all. You can take Holy Communion – just not if you remarry. Why would you go to another congregations? I’m assuming protestant? They don’t have Communion anyway.

  5. I’ve been married, divorced and remarried. I would not be able to participate in Holy Communion in the Catholic Church because of that?
