Before I start, my mom will never convert to Catholicism despite its really all she ever wants in a church. Seriously one day she came home said she doesn’t believe there will be a universal and multicultural church that stays together and agrees on everything. facepalm But I’m not trying to convert my mom she seems pretty rooted in her beliefs.
My issue is what if I get married? If I ever do get married it will be in the Catholic faith I’m not willing to compromise on that at all. My mom doesn’t seem like the type to behave properly mass. I’ve never been with her but I’ve been to other churches with her. Mainly Protestant but my mom makes sure that when she’s in church she sings very loudly, dances, prays outpouring (very loudly) and what ever other showy things she does in church. And I think at her church that’s totally fine because I guess in her church that is the norm.
But what am I supposed to do? Not invite her? What if have children? I’m going to have them baptized and my mom criticized the way Catholics baptize their children. If she does decide to come I’m a little hesitant since I’m worried that she will act very showy by dancing around clapping singing and disturbing everyone around her. On the other hand I don’t want to say she can’t come because I think she’s going to act a certain way.
Marriage and child birth are quite far a way, at least for me (only 18) but I’m going to be leaving over the summer and if im visiting over christmas I do have obligations and I do take that very seriously. If she says I’m not allowed to practice my faith while I’m visiting that is a serious problem for me. If I invite her I’m just concerned about being a disturbance.
