Not in particular, Devra.  It's kind of fuzzy to me, too. :)  Just a general sense I had, of Ivan's feeling guilty and wanting to do better.  Ha!  I should re-read that one; it was good!

Were you thinking of Crime & Punishment by Tolstoy??

Keeping this from the publicity of FB (I don't need any comments from fam), please Dev...  What about when someone only ends up meeting/dating men who either aren't Catholic or are Catholic "in name only"?  You would think, "Dating material only", right?  But when nothing ever changes, what is one supposed to think?  Also, we're taught, as you noted, "Love your neighbor as yourself" - so Catholics aren't the only "good" people.  How are we supposed to do that if there's no room for compromise?  So hard, rules vs. "real world"!  

So, approaching 40, living at home omg, marries someone outside the Church, but then, after Much explanation, patience and understanding, spouse understands enough to get annulment and we're able to re-do the marriage vows in the Church (this time with parents there).  How evil???  Impossible to read "blueprint"!  Breaking rule, bad.  Being open-minded and accepting, good.  Bending over backwards with patience for 2-1/2 yrs. explaining Church/annulment, not shoving down throat shouting, "We're #1!", darn good. :) 

Oh, and I agree that your parents would have met one way or the other! :)

Don't tell Drs. Sampo/Mumbach, but this may be one of the best things I've ever read (lol)!  It is just awesome!!  You really have a way!  It makes me consider re-reading some of The City of God, which sort of scared the hell out of me the first time at school, for fear of not understanding it.  (If I could only remember which part(s) of it we read??)  You'll have to let me know when you finish your translating!  

Now I have to Tease you:  I could be your um... personal proofreader, um... if you wanted... LOL!  You know, just a fresh pair of eyes, yours are sooo busy... :)  xoxo Cathy
