Yesterday, I went over to my SIL’s house. She was DF’d over a year ago, and I asked her if she still considered herself a JW. She answered no. In fact, she answered that she believes in the Trinity and asked me to help her back into Catholicism!! My mouth dropped open wide :bigyikes: I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. She asked if I could get a priest to talk to her so she can find out what she needs to do to come back to the Church. She’s been confirmed so I told her she only needed to confess and that if she needed help in understanding the Church that she could take the RCIA classes. She said she knows everything she needs to know to come back. She told me that this past Sunday she had the urge to go to Mass, but didn’t know how to do it. I told her that I can take her with me. She also asked if my grandmother could teach her how to pray the rosary. This is such a huge step… My prayers are working even faster than I expected!!!
Then, my big surprise was that her mother (my MIL) called her, and they were both talking about this. Just note, this is the woman who converted her family to JWism. She was Catholic up to 13 yrs ago, and guess what??? She is back to Catholicism as well!! I felt so happy, I still can’t believe it, when I think about it I feel like crying. Her mom is back and more devout than ever!! She was DF’d from the JWs a few months ago, and I didn’t know why. Now I know why. She said that for the past 4 yrs she wanted to get back to the Church but didn’t dare to leave because she didn’t want to lose her friends. She realized they weren’t her friends so there she is, back in the CC!!
One thing she mentioned to us yesterday was that she has been getting these dreams (she calls them visions) that all her kids will get back to the CC, and she is so convinced that it’s going to happen that she is giving me so much hope. Not because of her dream, but because the one person I thought would never convert back actually did. I never thought she’d get back to Catholicism, 2 are back, 3 to go… I’m EXTREMELY HAPPY!! :bounce: Now I know more people are praying that my DH comes back to the CC. Now my family and his family, plus all the kind people who told me they’d keep us in their prayers. :gopray2:
Oh, and get this, my SIL is so serious about this, she already signed up for a rosary prayer group on Wednesdays. She asked me to go with her, I guess for support. She feels a bit strange going back, but she has me here to help her out.
