I am returning to the Catholic church after being raised Protestant but baptized Catholic. I have had my first marriage anulled, have been going to Mass for a year, and my 13 year old daughter and I will be in RCIA in the fall. Since I have started reading about the faith and attending Mass, my husband, who was a severely fallen away Catholic, has started going to Mass again after 20 years(THANKS BE TO GOD), but will not get our marriage convalidated because he says it is “too much church.” I ask for prayers to change his heart, as I long to have our marriage blessed. We are very close to being unequally yoked, and that scares me. I try not to mention very much about my awesome, renewed relationship with our Lord, and at times, have been guilty of holding back, or not attending Mass if it was not convenient for everyone, but I can no longer do that. I must move forward, and I have. So, I ask for prayers for God to change his heart, and for him to do what I know he knows he should do. The pull of the world is so strong.
