For my children and their father and myself

by Helen

While my children all have love for God they do not understand. no matter how many times told, that God expects their love, prayers, going to Mass. Not just a few prayers and saying they believe and love Him without action.

I must not have instilled that in the growing up so I adknowledge my fault as well as having divorced their father who then remarried. Have been in contract with him and told him I am deeply sorry for what I did and now understand the ramifications of my actions, which I pray God forgive me.

I am not sure he can or will forgive me. He also ignored and did not support his children after the divorce but went into hiding with his new wife for three years. (he was not involved with anyone during the marriage).

He is a professional man and is a multi millionaire and has a son through the second marriage. After about 20 years he is in touch with our children through emails but there is no sense of being a father to them. Which was also true when we were married and I always felt the love for them was not there. Or he did not know how to express it.

I have been asking God for a healing of our family and that is my prayer request. That the family be healed and that the now grown chldren will stop talking and act on their Faith as God desires. Thank you Helen
