To begin with, I was baptised and confirmed in the catholic faith growing up, unfortunately, either through a weakness in my character or the work of the devil or a combination of the two I fell away from the faith in which I grew up and surrendered to my sinful nature for several years. After that time I met the woman who would become my wife. Through her love, God was able to draw me back to the faith and out of the devil’s grasp, however it was not until our son was undergoing heart surgery that I finally surrendered my heart once more to our Lord Jesus Christ placing my sole remaining hope in him.
Now this is all wonderful, but now that I find myself drawn back to the church of my youth, the church that my heart knows to be the one true bride of the Lamb, I find that my wife (who was raised in a protestant church) is now opposed to the further renewal of my faith. I love her very much and the consideration of marrying a protestant was not an issue that I considered at the time because I had not progressed very far on my return to faith at the time that I had married her. Now however I am torn between my love for her and my love for Christ and his Church.
I cannot abandon either so I pray that there is a peaceful resolution to this.
Suggestions would be appreciated
