Prayers, Please

A long-time sister-friend from my Protestant pastoring days, Kathi, has felt the pull that Chesterton describes (below) upon a person by the Catholic Church. She has recently accepted a full-time office position at a Catholic Church. Please keep her and her family in prayer as she discerns God's call and will for her. Thanks!

Chesterton: “...Truth is a magnet, with the powers of attraction and repulsion ... The moment men cease to pull against [the Catholic Church] they feel a tug towards it. The moment they cease to shout it down they begin to listen to it with pleasure. The moment they try to be fair to it they begin to be fond of it. But when that affection has passed a certain point it begins to take on the tragic and menacing grandeur of a great love affair ... When he has entered the Church, he finds that the Church is much larger inside than it is outside.”
