I apologize for the long post before hand but I have a situation that hopefully someone can give me some answers.
I was raised Jehova’s witness and have been never baptized. I met my wonderful wife a born/raised catholic and deeply religious. I have my battles with my spirituality and I think that came from been raised Jehova’s witness and seen first hand the damage that it can cause within a family (no disespect to any JW out there). I separated from JW and even started to question my belief in GOD to the point that up to two years ago I called myself an atheist even though I heart I didn’t believe that.
So I met my wonderful wife and at the beginning she knew my feeling about religion and chirch and she never ever once tried to convince me to go to church with her. She will sayd that she prayed for me because she said that she could see that my love for GOD was there but that past experiences were keeping me from reconciliating with my spititual self. So one day as she was getting my stepdaughter ready for mass, an impulse overcame me and I got dressed up and went to mass with her, the look on my mother in law and her entire family when I walked in with her after almost 2 years of relationship warmed my heart. My wife made me realize that I do love GOD that I want my life to follow a path of rightneousness and love of Jesus Christ. It was never gone, it was there dormant waiting for someone to reenergized it and that person was my wife.
Now it comes the hard part, my wife was once married by the Catholic church, she has two daughters from a previous marriage. When we got married we wanted to do it under the blessing of GOD but since we couldn’t do with the Catholic church I had a friend who is a evangelical pastor to marry us. Now me and my wife want to get married by the Catholic church but we have no clear guidance on how to get that accomplished. Any guidance will be appreciated.
