A catholic woman? a second wife?
May the Lord forgive me if in so wondering, I have judged.

Do you mean the man has 2 wives and this Catholic woman is his second wife??

Yes Patricia.
A poligamous marriage in which the catholic woman is the "home breaker"; that is how I think of second wives, I am afraid. You see, there I go judging again Sad

Good virtuous folks feel more pleasure in the sorrow over their sins and the affliction of their penance than wretches feel in the fulfilling of their foul pleasure.

Odhiambo, that's not judging. It's the truth. You can't be a true Catholic and be a second wife/homebreaker. She is living in mortal sin, I'm afraid and not in the Faith. The Catholic faith does not allow polygamy.

I don't believe knowing the difference between right and wrong is a sin, it's a blessing. I'm going through something similar in my own family with how to deal with "the other women" and I am struggling with it.

Reprimand and rebuke should be accepted as healing remedies for vice and as conducive to good health. From this it is clear that those who pretend to be tolerant because they wish to flatter, those who thus fail to correct sinners actually cause them to suffer supreme loss and plot the destuction of that life which is their true life.

This quote from St. Basil is very key to understanding these times we live in I think.

And something sharp to think of when we consider ourselves and whether we have done this or not.


'A strong man is one who repels evil through the practice of the virtues and with spiritual knowledge.'

'If you truly love God and long to reach the kingdom that is to come, if you are truly pained by your failings and are mindful of punishment and of the eternal judgement, if you are truly afraid to die, then it will not be possible to have an attachment, or anxiety, or concern for money, for possessions, for family relationships, for worldly glory, for love and brotherhood, indeed for anything on earth. All worry about one's condition, even for one's body, will be pushed aside as hateful. Stripped of all thought of these, caring nothing about them, one will turn freely to Christ.

One will look to heaven and to the help coming from there, as in the scriptural sayings: "I will cling close to you" (Ps. 62:9) and "I have not grown tired of following you nor have I longed for the day or the rest that man gives" (Jer. 17:16).'

St. John Climacus

Isn't it wonderful to read the quotes of the saints? The practice of copying them down from books is a splendid one for spiritual learning! I am very thankful when folks share them here.

Ah, a quick correction there. At first I wrote out St. John Cassian, but it was St. John Climacus. I have now corrected it.

Yes, this forum has taught me that; I am ever so grateful to you for inviting me over Shin. You were right when you told me I did not know what I was missing. It was that which decided me. Grin
