Thank you very much for the prayers, everyone!
And for strength in your role as spiritual head of the family!
That, too! I need that more than ever :(
Get the kid in a Latin program as quickly as possible-- it's excellent for him academically, and then you can fire the "he won't understand anything" argument right back at her.
And yes, I sympathize with your issue with "compromise": "compromise" is only praiseworthy, it seems, insofar as it distances one from the Catholic Church (the same thing goes for "open-mindedness").
Tell me about it.
Since we live almost an hour from the Institute's church (damn, how I regret moving out here), just getting to Mass more than once a month (given all the other obstacles in my way) is almost too much to hope for. I can handle Latin well enough on my own, so I'll just have to pray that I am enough.
Gah, I already weep for the future.
That's not selfishness on your part, that's charity for your son and wife.
Thank you for the kind reassurance, but I know it's not selfishness on my part. Sadly, I know all too well where it is.
I just pray that the Lord reduces the angle of my uphill battle from what seems like 90 degrees to something a bit more manageable...
