From a Message Board I replied to about divorce, or seperation

You may need an intervention by a priest or a catholic counselor or a couples retreat. Also, it would be beneficial to all if you started a Novena for your Marriage, together if he will cooperate but alone otherwise. Ask with tenderness. Read about St. Thomas More, he died defending marriage. (Happens to be the patron of my anniversary date.)

I would go to ebay or amazon and buy this book: How To Change Your Husband Awesome book.

I would also like to add that this may be a time of spiritual warfare. The devil will work on breaking up the family above all things. It is the earthly bond that most represents The Holy Family. Be on guard. Continue your daily prayers, Rosary, Divine Chaplet, etc. Then add to that the St. Michaels Prayer, every time you get a bad thought about your husband.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the hour of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God restrain him we humbly pray, and do thou oh Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits that roam through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

We are not in paradise now, but our actions on this short life will totally affect out eternity. Do not run away from your husband but towards him with humility, and patience.

Read this humbling short story: The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

He will change, if you are patient and pray without ceasing. God is good and I have seen miracles, HE will respond. Be vigilant, never cease praying. Pray for an increase in faith. Keep in mind that God is all good and all knowing. HE does not want to see you suffer. Come to Him for everything.

Mark 11:24-24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
At night put your hand on your husbands back and say this,
"ComeHoly Spirit Fill the Hearts of Thy Faithful and Enkindle in them the Fire of Your Love."
Then envision the fire of the Holy Spirit filling both your hearts, as one.
Here is a verse to meditate on:
Gen 2:21-24
21So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23The man said,"This is now bone of my bones,And flesh of my flesh;She shall be called Woman,Because she was taken out of Man." 24For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
God bless you and think about this:

Proverbs 14
1The wise woman builds her house,But the foolish tears it down with her own hands.

Oh, I love that verse in Proverbs 14!!!

We just had close friends (Bob's best friend and my best friend married eachother) get a divorce. I pleaded and pleaded and prayed and prayed for them to go to a Christian councelor, but they chose a secular one. Do you want to know what this person told them the very first time they met?

This "counselor" told them to start seeing other people!!!! That's no way to help a marriage! Our society is in dire straits!!!!
