I’ve been married for 10 years now my wife and I are both Catholic and were married in the Catholic Church. When my wife and I were going through Precana we both had the same fervor about our Catholic faith.
My faith has actually grown stronger and my observance of Jesus in my daily life is ever present. My wife has been drifting in out and she has become more of a luke warm Catholic, for lack of a better term. I love my wife dearly but lately she seems to be very bothered my ever deepening faith and my prayer life even to the point of, I hate say this like a jealousy.
I’ve asked her to pray with me and she cares not to. She goes to Church with me and my daughter but I always feel like she is doing it for me and out of guilt, not that I ever make her feel that way, as a matter of fact quite the opposite, I let the Holy Spirit move her and not by any preaching to her or guilt.
I am going away on a pilgrimage on Sunday, Divine Mercy to be exact, and I asked her to come along, no interest at all.
I make time every night for about an hour to read scripture and pray because I want to have a deeper relationship and a more loving intimate union with God and now she calls me a bore.
Well, obviously I would love her my wife to be on the same spiritual journey as me but she is not. I know her heart is in the right place and she used to be pretty fervent about it but not so much anymore. She has even questioned herself on weather or not she believes at times, which really saddens me.
I was wondering if anyone else has been through this and if anyone had any advice or words of encouragement for me?
Thank you and God Bless
