There appear to be some growing tensions with my in-laws about my conversion and trying to persuade my wife that I did not know about. We're now getting visits from people from her parents' Campbellite church which she has attended a few times over the last two months. I know they are just trying to share their hope and faith, but right now I am fuming and trying to keep my cool. I resolved a while ago not to argue with a soul but just to pray about this, but honestly I am sick of praying and just want to tell off everyone and call them a bunch of heretics who need to pick up a history book.
Because I feel so angry and combative I know that this is a demonic spirit, because it is not peaceful, so I am not acting on it. It is just so frustrating these days that when a man wants to really spiritually lead his family, it's like he is emasculated in this post-feminist society, where he can not truly lead his own household. Most of the men I know would never take their families to church or lead them in a proactive way. There are some who are dragging in by their nagging wives "for the sake of the kids", but they could care less about the salvific ascetical life.
Please pray for me, a sinner. Especially join me in asking the Mother of God for help, because I have been seeking her aid above all else in this struggle.
Most holy Mother of God, save us!
