I’ve been exploring Catholicism and Orthodoxy for a number of years. My husband and I were convinced reformed baptists for quite some time. Neither of us is any longer, but my husband has gone in the direction of evangelical Anglicanism. I share what I am learning because we both think it’s kind of important to try and pull together spiritually. He has been quite seriously opposed to my interest in Catholicism in particular, stopping me going to mass regularly and being quite mocking about it.
I am obviously praying too. My question is, how do you know when it’s time to shut up and just let your life do the talking, when someone has previously responded well to reasonable discussion?
