I am a convert to the Catholic faith, from a very religious family in the evangelical-protestant tradition. While my mother and father were strangely supportive of my decision to convert nearly twenty years ago (I actually had not practiced my protestant faith for several years) I have been pretty much ostracized by the rest of my relatives.
My 84 year-old mother is now a widow and has been a resident in a Catholic nursing home for six months. She is very happy there and has been hinting to me that she would like to learn more about the Catholic faith. This leaves me in a very delicate position. I would love to help her become Catholic but I would face extreme friction from my brother and his wife (who is particularly anti-catholic) if they suspected that I were trying to convert her. I am afraid that he would move her to another home in spite of the fact that it would make her very unhappy. He is her legal guardian.
What should I do?
