I gained my Catholic faith. I gained purpose. I gained a reason for life greater than I. I gained back and then some, my passion for being Catholic. I won a couple arguments, drew to a stalemate in others to a girl and her family who were passionately non-denominational Christians. I needed help and Catholic Answers as well as many other CDs, radio and just the Mass itself gave me courage to stand up for what I believe as the fullest version of the truth. I lost my girlfriend and I miss her, but with her, I was missing my faith. We parted ways, and in this momment tonight I feel weak & I feel lonely. I have my Bible, but its so quiet and still, I have my prayers but they’re flooded with old memories of a relationship I do not have…It’s only typical heartbreak, nothing unusual. During my days I sometimes feel strong and victorious as I feel I presented my case for Catholisim well. This not to uncommon path of religion breaking up relationships almost reminds me of a theme “Christ before Diamonds” …maybe a book title someday.
I know my answer if prayer, but when I’m alone at night, I feel extra alone. At Mass, I feel I’m around my family. Tonight I almost caved in, and wrote my now exgirlfriend an email to meet up and talk… but everything is over for the right reasons.
Is there a Saint to pray to regarding recently brokenup relationships? Where might I find more comfort?
Thank you all, God Bless!
