I am an interfaith minister. I am proud to know so many paths and see the crossroads for each to another. I am about to do a wedding for a couple that doesn't want too much Christianity in their Christian wedding. The Bride is an Agnostic and the Groom is a non-practicing Catholic.

Would I be ok using the New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha NRSV? It is the only Bible that I trust and like.

Permission by a Catholic bishop is no longer required for a Catholic to marry a non-Catholic?

hasn't been for a long time,and if he's not practicing it really won't matter to him.

A non-practicing Catholic is that something like a marathon runner that never runs?

Seems to me that a non practicing Catholic is simply not a Catholic.

But I know, I am strange and unreasonable, I don't fit in with the 'flexminders'.

From what little I know the NRSV is fully acceptable but many Catholics prefer the older RSV edition.

You might also find this passage from The Prophet useful...

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
