Re: Cursed by her mother
According to Fr. Jose Antonio Fortea in the book, “An Interview With An Exorcist,” (available through shop.Catholic.com) the first person to be affected by a curse is the one who initiated the curse. Whether or not the curse has any affect on the one cursed depends on whether God allows it to have an effect.
The person who has been cursed needs to pray the rosary, read the Bible, speak with God daily, attend Mass frequently, place a blessed crucifix and image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the house, and make the sign of the cross with holy water daily. If things do not get better, then the person was not affected by the curse.
I suspect that this is the case with the couple you mention. They hardly started out on the right foot. The impinging divorce could have been inevitable since they were trying to make the best of a bad situation.
