Pope John Paul II on worthy reception of the Sacraments

In a meeting with the American Bishops, Pope John Paul II said that, "It is sometimes claimed that dissent from the Magisterium is totally compatible with being a 'good Catholic' and poses no obstacle to the reception of the Sacraments. This is a grave error that challenges the teaching office of the Bishops of the United States and elsewhere..."

The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1395, teaches us that the Eucharist is properly the Sacrament of those who are in full communion with the Church. Does your parish priest teach this? If not, why not?
