I know a woman who is very anti catholic. She grew up in an abusive home and blames her religious upbringing. When I have been around her she does not hesitate to criticize the Church.
She is agnostic, her husband is a Christian.
A couple of days ago my neighbor announced to me that this woman had told her that her husband was going to become Catholic! I was floored, this was not something that I had expected. Apparently, the woman in question commented that as she was already Catholic she wouldn’t have to convert too.
I have been praying that this woman loose her anger over her upbringing. Now I am not saying that she is happy about her husband’s decision, but it is a start.
So, I just wanted to let you know, that prayers do work.
