Since I have strong belief in Hinduism, I refused and we parted.
A few days later, she returned to me and agreed that our love for each other was strong enough to overcome that hurdle. I have a few questions: 1) Can we have a "Proper Church wedding" which is not just a civil union?
He was able to state that Christ was the fulfillment of that human spirituality. You might find that the Catholic Church might indeed appeal to you. God bless, -- john placette ([email protected]), February 22, 2005.
You should both enrol in Engagement Encounter if there is one available at your girlfriend's parish.
Just as some point of encouragement, I knew of a catholic priest who was raised by his Catholic mom and his Hindu father.
From what I understand, a marriage between a non-catholic & a catholic will always be only a blessing ceremony. You cannot enter into a sacramental ceremony if you don't believe in it I guess. There is nothing wrong in learning about Hinduism or any other major religion while being a catholic.
If one is raised in strong faith as a Catholic, one will find the beauty of the revealed love of God through the Catholic Church. I will not try to paint a rosy picture for a mix marriage. In any marriage whether catholic or not, there is going to be a lot of give and take and also a lot of finding out of different value and beliefs concepts between two person.
He is a very good and eloquent priest who speaks highly of his mom and also greatly revered his father. -- Anthony Yong ([email protected]), February 22, 2005. As a Hindu, you believe in the spiritual aspects of all life, and there is no condemnation for a Hindu if they decide to convert to Christianity. He was a Trappist monk who was a very orthodox Catholic, but found spiritual alliances with the eastern religions.
2) I understand that children resulting from such a marriage are required to be baptized and raised catholic.But is it allowed that they be imparted knowledge of Hinduism (as is my case)?3) Is there anyone who entered a mixed matrimony and is happy?I have to ask this question as I have come across many posts of people who were sorry to enter such a union. Thanks very much, Lambu ------------ -- Lambu ([email protected]), February 22, 2005 Hi Lambu, 1. Yes, Catholics in such union are called upon by the church to raised the children as faithful catholics.
I am a Hindu and I am in love with a religious Catholic Girl.She initially demanded that I had to convert in order for her to even consider anything.
