My husband remains critical. One of his doctors seems to be getting impatient, it is useless to tell him supernatural battles are taking place too and that things will happen in their own time.
One of the things about having your other half in such a condition, is that I'm finding I need to be scrupulous about my own conduct. I was glad St Peter used that very word in the second reading today. I'm finding that if my own conduct is rigorous in terms of examination of conscience, charity and patience and all done out of love for the Lord, it leads to a welcome calmness. Although the demons of doubt still prowl and tease in the small hours, I have better armour and find it easier to call on the angels to help fend them off. I do so wonder if that sacramental union in the marriage has some real mysterious depths. Desiring closeness to Christ and love for husband can not be separated.
Keep us in your prayers, as I do you.
Having said that, patience and charity are being somewhat tested by elements in the Catholic blogger world. Suffice to say; I'm really pleased that some of you profess to love Jesus, I'm just glad you do it some place else, because if I met you I'd struggle not to give you a jolly good pasting. Beware of becoming too big for your own blog, beware of becoming Sadducees, your religion is unappealing.
