I try to live my life as simply as possible in accords with St. Francis; there’s really no material possessions that matter to me beyond some of my deceased father’s mementos and my wedding ring. I also try every day to pray every hour of the Divine Office and attend Holy Mass. I don’t really have any hobbies beyond studying the history of the Church.
Here is my concern. I mean this in no condescending or disrespectful way whatsoever, out of pure honesty – my wife seems to be less spiritually advanced than I am. She strongly desires material things like a nice house and furniture, and frequently she has become frustrated due to the fact that she does not always want to attend Mass on Sundays. I am earnestly praying for her. Do you think that the current state of my marriage would be an impediment to being an OFS?
