comment Why are Protestants from the Church of England allowed to divorce?
This official position of the Church of England is that it has no control over divorce. It allows clergy the freedom not to marry divorcees. There is no annulment process within the Church of England, but it also allows the freedom to accept that marriages may come to an end.

comment Can a Catholic married to an Orthodox in an Orthodox church re-celebrate her wedding in a Catholic church?
Uh-oh. The Vatican's online site is out of date, I think. The words "and has not defected from it by a formal act (nec actu formali ab ea defecerit) were omitted from Canons 1086.1, 1117 and 1124 by the Motu Proprio Omnium in Mentem of 26 October 2010. And there I was thinking it was authoritative. (It doesn't change this answer because defection is irrelevant in this case.)

comment Automatic Excommunication
I've now made this a more obvious Catholic doctrine question and less a pastoral advice question. Latae sententiae excommunication is remissible and Wikipedia has an article.

comment Blessings of the Priest
Do you mean that every St Benedict cross/medal must be blessed, or that it doesn't have to be but if it is then then only an ordained person can do it? The OSB itself suggests the latter.

comment What do the Catholic Church consider constitutes intrinsically impossible things?
I've already got that. "God does not include them in his will or justice." Not doing what is contrary to his own nature is exactly what Aquinas is saying.

comment Can you re-enter the catholic church after leaving?
Baptismal records (and those of confirmations and other ecclesial events) are never expunged. It's a historical record of an actual fact.

Misread "non-Christian" in the question body as "non-Catholic" from the title.
