Last weekend, we posted a question from EPG, an Anglican reader of YIM Catholic. The question was, Do Catholics go overboard with Mary? Thirty of you answered, in a comment thread that is a virtual encyclopedia of Marian experience. Now here’s another question that some would-be converts might ask, and it’s not an easy one. It’s a question for those received into the Catholic Church as adults with a husband or wife who is not Catholic, not interested in Catholicism, or perhaps even hostile to Catholicism:
EPG asks: “How did you handle questions, biases, anger, misinformation, etc., in the middle of your own discernment? Did resistance, opposition, confusion, feelings of hurt or betrayal from a husband or wife create difficulties in your process of discernment and reception? How did you address the issues that did come up?”
So here’s message one for EPG: Converts discerning about Catholicism should not feel alone in this.
Your thoughts, readers?
