— 1 — This Week’s Post: Antonio and Maria This guest post, written by my Mom, recounted the story of how my Grandparents met! It may have appeared to you that my Grandmother was forced to marry my Grandfather. But, I hope this comment will clear that up and provide a broader perspective:
“I think what it highlighted to me is that women have had some sort of suffering
to deal with in every generation. Our generation is suffering from non-committal men and the over-sexualization of the human person. My grandmother had to deal with not having complete say so in her life. She wanted to go to school and we take that for granted. In the end, whatever our suffering is, we can depend upon the Lord to be with us, that He knows about it ahead of time and that He has somehow permitted it for His glory.”
