LOL I think I was deliriously tired last night when I posted so I should clarify. It was past my bedtime.
This is a family member who was raised in a nominally Catholic home so she was baptized as an infant and attended CCD all though her school years. She has never behaved as a Catholic and is now in her 30’s. She’s told me she’s proud to be vain, narcissistic, and the center-of-attention. She supports abortion, homosexual so-called marraige and euthanasia. She told me that Catholics who don’t are hypocrites. She says all Catholics are “blood-thirsty” because we do horrible things, like the Inquisition, but not her, of course, because she is one of the few who don’t support the Inquisition. She doesn’t believe in God, yet says she “prays” so I can only imagine this “prayer” she participates in is more like meditation.
Yes, she lives in a fantasy world and she is the heroine.
I think also I’ve been talking to Protestants so often I use their lingo. By “convert” I mean an interior conversion. I pray that she will one day know, love and serve God.
The Protestant said that if God doesn’t chose to redeem her that I could pray she be real and honest to stop falsely professing to be Catholic. Is that okay to do? At first it seemed like a prayer of despair. Perhaps, though, honesty could be the 1st step toward interior conversion. And yes, I think the Protestant doesn’t know Catholicism well enough to give advice, although it is well intentioned.
