Catholic Guidance and Inspiration For Today's World

My Husband is now a Catholic

1 Comment


I would like to share this with all you wives out there that feel your prayers are not being heard.

Most people in church thought my husband was a Catholic. He attended Mass by my side for over 17 years. I prayed in silence for him and knew it would be his path not mine. I wise priest told me it is best to silently pray then to try to push. My husband had signed up for the Time Line Bible Study at our parish. After that he said I want to become a Catholic. So the journey continued with RCIA and this Easter Vigil he was welcomed into the Church. As for me it was a humbling experience. For when he received First Communion overwhelming feelings flooded me as I began to cry. What stood out was how humble I felt, that the Lord blessed me in such a way along with my husband. A renewal, a gift, a love also awaits you. Do not be discouraged. Persevere! It doesn’t hurt to put a green Scapular under his side of the mattress either. All the support you can get lets to God’s graces. Happy Easter Week. 

Thank you Lord for my blessings.

  1. I just want to say that my journey has been an interesting one. I didn’t realize how many people (and other things, i.e. scapular) were involved in prayerfully helping me discern during this time. I am thankful for all the prayers and support. I had, and still have, many questions. That’s why I’m excited to participate in any Catholic Bible Study classes that are offered. I would encouage every Catholic to attend one of these. You will develop a much greater understanding and appreciation of your faith. I have! Peace be with you!
