Was wondering if you all have any words of advice and to ask that you might say a prayer for my family.
My wife is Lutheran and I’m Catholic. Our son is 8 months old. He was baptized in the Lutheran Church. He was baptized Lutheran because of my ignorance at the time. I now know he could have been baptized Catholic. My wife doesn’t show any interest in converting and I don’t push her. We haven’t discussed in what faith we are going to raise our son. I know that I have a responsibility to raise him Catholic. I promised this when we got married.
Ever since our son was baptized, I became very eager and passionate about re-learning my faith. I’m a cradle Catholic. My wife doesn’t know a whole lot about her faith. However, she is starting religious education through her church this Sunday. She’s not sure if it’s strictly Bible study or catechism as well. I feel I actually know more about her faith than she.
Another issue is daycare. Mom is staying at home with him right now, but plans are for her to go back to teaching next year. She is currently taking classes to finish her master’s and if she doesn’t teach next year, she will have to start all over with her master’s. I’d rather her stay at home with him until he starts school.
Please pray that we find a way for one of us to stay at home with him instead of sending him to daycare, that God makes my wife’s heart right towards His Church and that we raise our son in the Catholic Faith. If this is God’s will.
Thank you all and God bless!
