the husband of my friend has been exploring various new age religions. one of them being something with animal spirits. all of this has led him down a dark path, to where he now says he is an atheist. his drinking has gotten out of control as well where he passes out at his neighbors house and doesn’t tell his wife where’s he’s at.
they have three young children and he told his wife that he wasn’t happy and that he wanted a divorce.
the wife was brought up in a fundamentalist Christian family that scared her away with all their fire and brimstone talk. i have been praying for them both and she seems to be responding. she told me something changed for her a few months ago and now every morning she wakes up and prays and asks God to shower her with love so she can do good. it bothers me that she was taught so much nonsense about Catholicism, and Christianity in general. honestly if i was taught all that she had been, i’d have turned my back on Christ too. she does make me laugh though, because everything she disagrees with about Christianity is some form of heresy. she has no idea how much of her beliefs actually are Catholic.
she now has this feeling that demons are trying to take her kids and that her husband is surrounded by them.
her mother asked her to read the Bible and she feels she doesn’t need that to know God and that religion is just divisive, yet she did make an attempt to start to read John. she said when she started a voice in her head said if she were to continue reading, then she was going to have her kids taken away from her.
also i am pretty certain that both parents were baptized in protestant Churches, but the children were never baptized.
please pray for both of them. nothing short of divine intervention can save their souls and their marriage. i keep praying that they both will convert to Catholicism to find the peace and answers they have been seeking. and also that the children can be baptized in the Holy Catholic Church.
