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.

Noted Patricia. Thanks.

'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

We should strive to keep our hearts open to the sufferings and wretchedness of other people, and pray continually that God may grant us that spirit of compassion which is truly the Spirit of God.

I can only pray that more people realize how learning about the saints is so priceless.  crucifix

On a lighter note.

Hearing nun's confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.
Venerable Fulton j. Sheen

It often happens that I wake at night, begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember - I am the Pope.
