I have been reviewing my life since I came back to the Church and have a question.
While growing up. my Mom sent me to all private Catholic Schools. My memories of her while young was Mass, Mass and more Masses. She used to go almost everyday, especially during Lent. She is a very fervent Catholic.
We used to say the Rosaries together with Mom, my Brother, Sister and I. She made sure all three of us were babtized, had our First Communion and Confirmation. I still remember kissing the Ring of the(I think it was a Cardinal) Cardinal.
No meat on Fridays, none!
Now, here is my question. My Mom married my Dad, he is Jewish and never converted Catholicism out of respect for his Mom.
I am pretty sure the Church didnt marry them, I will find out tonight.
He used to go to Church with us out of respect for my Mom. All three of us kids are adopted. She had a Hysterectomy when she was 21 or 22. I am the oldest. She got me when she was 30. Four years later, My Sister, 8 years later than me, my Brother.
My Mom is 86 and her time is almost up. She is such a good woman and loves all of us as if we came from her. She has sacraficed so much for us and gave so much to the Church and related Charities. To me, she is a very Holy person.
Is she still in good standings with Christ because of marrying a Jewish man?
By the way, she is starting to see my Dad come to her room at night. He has been dead for over 10 years. I think that is a sign and I am worried.
