I’m just looking for a little guidance. I’ve been in love with this woman for four years now. We dated for awhile four years ago and then she split up with me. I was devastated, but little did I know she’d come back into my life a few later.
Anyways, about three years ago she went from not having any church background at all to becoming deeply involved with a Pentecostal church. I’ve gone to this church with her before. They’re really good people, very devout. Strong in spirit to and I’d say atleast 75% of what the pastor teaches is actually in line with Catholic teaching.
My problem is this. I just agreed to take a step back from this relationship and become friends with my girlfriend again. She says that this must happen because of the personal revealation of God to her that we should do so and in turn she says that God will bless us both. I agreed to this. About a month ago she told me she had another revealation and that was a promise from God that me and her would be married someday. I’m taking all this on faith. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s devoted her life to God even though not in the fullness of Christian tradition.
So I took a leap of faith and gave her my word that I would start reading the Bible and praying fervently and I have been. God’s given me incredible grace. I’ve been praying the rosary two or three times a day. The Holy Spirit descended upon me as I reflected on the sorrowful mysteries today. I guess my question is how do I most tastefully and respectfully introduce the Catholic faith to her in a way that a Pentecostal would be receptive?
