… Regular readers know I’m divorced and have been so since 2004. I left my husband when The Boy was a little over a year old. We have not seen him since. For those of you who think Christian persecution is a foreign problem in third world nations, I would introduce you to my ex-husband. Only I have no idea where he is. On matters of my divorce I keep things simple when my son asks. I only tell him that he was not Catholic and wanted to keep us from the Church.
Since the time my son learned to talk he has prayed every day for that man; Lord, do not let him die in mortal sin separated from the Church.
My son, at seven, is a better person than I could ever hope to be.
