I am Catholic and remarried and going through the annulemnt process. When I asked the Abbot if I should abstain from sex his answer was “keep doing what you are doing.” Also, he told me I would not be able to receive the sacraments if we did abstain from sex. My understanding is the sin I am committing is adultery. If this is so, why can I not receive the sacraments if I abstain from sex? Also, in your opinion, should I abstain until I can marry in the Church.
