In a little less than two weeks I will be traveling to NC to help my mom do an estate sale for my grandma who is moving to a retirement community in AZ. My mom and her husband do not practice any faith that I am aware of. He has been marginally Buddhist in the past, but neither of them would ever consider themselves Christian. They feel very brow beaten by the Bible Beaters they encounter in the small NC town they live in, so are very anti-Christian. They are, however, very respectful of my Catholicism, which I get from my dad’s side of the family.
So anyway - while I’m there I’m going to finally have the big talk with them that they need to consider the eternal state of their souls, and that I am very worried that they may never end up in heaven.
Please pray for me, and for all of us. My mom does tend to lock me out when I start to talk about religion, I can even feel her body tense over the phone if it ever comes up. I will need all the help I can get. These are very good people - but they just don’t get it that there really is more to it than only that.
Thanks to All,
