In August, I took my wife, for the first time, to an Orthodox Divine Liturgy. It was the last time I was able to get her to attend it with me to my lament. Since, I have been taking my daughter on and off but not my wife.

We talked about our plans this Christmas and she agreed to attend the Holy Supper and the Vigil this year. I ask for your prayers that this will go well and that my wife will be open to the graces of the parish community and the Vigil.

Thank you very much and God Bless.

Lord, save Your people and bless Your inheritance! Be with Your faithful servant Ignatius, and with his wife, and with his all family in this very special time of the year.

Lord, have mercy.

I can relate to this all too well, as my wife currently has no interest in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ.

Lord, guide Your servants.

May I ask, what all is your background?

Christ is Born! Glorify Him!

My whole family went and we made it through the entire Vigil... my wife enjoyed it!

Thanks for the prayers!

Merry Christmas!
