RCIA Prayers

So FI starts RCIA today and I am nervous.  I have been praying that the Lord speaks to him and my FI really accepts him.  Any prayers or advice for what I can do to help would be much appreciated!  Thank you ladies :o)

    Prayers your way!  Are you able to attend with him?  When I went through, FI and his sister attended the classes with me and it was great to have someone there I knew who could answer questions for me that I either didn't get a chance to ask or just didn't feel comfortable asking the whole class.  Then FI was my "sponsor" at confirmation, which was really special for us.

    Oh, bummer.  Well, at least if you are there sometime when he has class, I'm sure it would mean a lot!

    I will definitely send prayers your way. I loved my RCIA experience. I would encourage you to really be open to conversation with your FI after his classes. Let him tell you about what was presented, and what his thoughts and questions are. Share your experiences and your faith as he goes throught it. Make a Skype date on RCIA nights to discuss. I think you'll find that you grow spiritually along with him and you will begin to develop a "couples" spirituality that will surely strengthen your marriage.

    This is so true.  FI and I developed a sort of ritual where we'd go sit on the patio at one of our favorite restaurants after RCIA and have some food and discuss the class.  He's always been very knowledgeable in catholic teachings, so it was so nice to have someone to just bounce my thoughts off of.
