Well, I’m in a constant state of trying to bring them to Christ, but not through convincing through words, but by my actions. This is a state every Christian should be in for everyone.
My mom is a theist, she just doesn’t want to dedicate herself to a religion (one of those people that says “well no one knows for sure so i wont bother”).
My dad is an atheist for… I don’t know. He never really explained it. It’s weird because his life circumstances and the fact that he was baptized the same day as me would make him pretty well on the path to Christianity, but for some reason he refuses. I don’t know, honestly.
But hey, Augustine’s mother prayed for him around 30 years until he converted. I can pray, and I can show my love for them. When necessary, I’ll use words. But yes, I am trying.
I’m in the exact same position with a family member of mine; in trying to bring them in by my actions alone. I know she’s not currently open to “listening” and she has been attending protestant services. She has agreed to attend Mass with me every weekend which is a start. But the last time I went with her, she went up for Communion and she shouldn’t have. So I don’t know if she will go with me this coming up weekend as I’m going to tell her I don’t want her to go up; she needs to sit until she goes to Confession. Internally, it just drives me crazy with the path she is choosing to go down. But at this point, all I can do is pray that the Lord touches her.#catholic #family problems
