Go sábhála Dia Éire.

This is my second post in this forum (following a post on nationalism). I am a Latin-Rite Catholic and my girlfriend is a baptised Catholic (only Sacrament of Initiation she has ever received) and we have been going to an OCA mission parish in the town we live in. I was a catechumen for awhile, then left after attending Easter Vigil Mass with my dad due to some internal pressures. Both my girlfriend and I intend on going back to the OCA parish. Please pray for us on our journeys.

Welcome, and lord have mercy!

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Lord, have mercy and may He grant you the strength and courage to continue on with your journey. 

You and your wife are mature enough to understand that Satan will pull out all the stops to discourage you.  If you begin having negative feelings about your journey, or if you experience external pressure to not proceed any further, know that it very well could be Satan;  "Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:Cool  I will pray for you and your family.
