I am wondering if you could provide me a clue as to why my mother-in-law is so intolerant to Catholicism. I have been married to my husband for nearly 10 years, and I would think she would come around at some point, but she still makes snide comments. I have asked her in the past what it is she hates about Catholics and she would not answer.
My oldest son will be making his First Communion in about two years, and at this point, I do not want to invite her. Her latest comment was that my parochial-school-educated son would be safer in a public school. I am just so upset! We do not live in the same city as my mother-in-law, but I also do not want to leave her out of something so important to my son’s life. What should I do?
