This is a strange question, perhaps. I have been praying that my sister finds happiness with a good Catholic man for some time–since she got out of that terrible relationship last year (as many of you know) with a man who left his wife for her. She did leave him–thank goodness–and is getting back into her faith very strongly. She prays, reads religious books, and attends mass every week, she tells me. She is grateful for this ‘second chance’ from God. (me too!!) I am not sure if she has been to confession since her divorce, but I have planted seeds suggesting she goes. (it’s been a while since we discussed it) So, now she is on a dating website…and is dating (not seriously–just dinners, golf, lunches, etc–light get togethers) two very nice men–both, from what it sounds like, are into the faith–and divorced. I started thinking the other day–is it right for me to ask God to bring her to another man? She did not get an annulment-nor is she seeking one. She has thought about it, but told me not too long ago, that she doesn’t think the RCC would grant her one.
So–I’m assuming this means that if she remarries…she is in the state of adultery–right? So…it is wrong then for me to pray that she finds a good man to share her life with? I think it might be.
Please let me know your thoughts. What would you pray in this circumstance, for a sibling/family member going through the same thing?
