I hate to say it… it felt so good in so many ways at the time. But I think, in the long run, it *may *be spiritually harmful.
That is where my recent prayer has lead me.
Perhaps I was too circumspect with my first post.
Have you checked into the Women of Grace event?
Perhaps you could see if your wife’s favorite group is having a concert some other time?
It all comes down to how much we want to wallow in our ignorance.
A priest friend of mine once accused me of being complicit. … I want to share in the love of God with my non-Catholic sisters. It is so up-lifting to see people just so openly in love with Him. It is not something easily obtained in our Catholic settings.
No matter how hard we focus on that greater good of unity, our souls can not bear the burden of playing along in the deceit… or just ignoring it.
The honest truth is that Catholics and Catholic viewpoints are not welcomed *in the least *at these events and so, regardless of the high, God is shut out.
Truth is shut out. And any hope of moving forward with faith encounters a glass ceiling.
Pray on it with your wife; but I can not be emphatic enough that if she wants to grow in her faith to its fullest potential; not just ride from one high to the next; the both of you should seek better avenues together.
