Can I celebrate Yom Kippur with my wife?
Hello everyone. I am novel.
I have been catholic all my life but I have never put the Church at the Center of my life - I have never lived a life according to Catholic Ortho-doxy.
To have married my jewish wife at the Catholic Church has put me face to the importance of being Catholic.
There is a Central day on Jewish Liturgical Year: Yom Kippur, the "Day of Atonement". My wife is quite non-practising, but I cannot deny that she carries her Jewishness on their shoulders. It cannot not be her world.
I have personally a strong attraction toward Yom Kippur. I am certainly quite ready for regret my sins. That is because I like Romanesque Catholicism more than Gothic Catholicism.
That is also because I am not brave for live a life non cared by the Security of the Law. I don't want to think about Passion. I don't want to think about Love. It is the possible reason for not go to Orthodoxy. I want to care me according to the Law because I don't want to go towards a Church too liberal because it recognises her Sins.
To celebrate Yom Kippur with my life could be bad? She was a little ashamed on services, but we celebrated Lent and Easter together.
To celebrate Yom Kippur could make stronger my delectation over a wordly life? (bounded by non-ready for sacrifice Law such as that of Pharisees?)
