I’ve never been one for socialising, and having lived in the same parish for nearly ten years, I still only know 2 or 3 people, and only as nodding acquaintances at that.
Up until two years ago we had a pretty liberal Priest and it was a real trial to put up with. I often felt more depressed after Mass than at any other time of the week, which was awful. However, two years ago we were blessed with a new Priest who was very devout and traditional and made all kinds of changes for the better - we even had the Extraordinary Form of Mass. Recently, after having had this wonderful Priest for such a brief time, the Bjshop moved him on and has replaced him with a Priest even more liberal than the first one.
I just can’t face going back to the awful liberal rubbish, but I also can’t help but feel, deep down, that maybe a trial is what God intends for me, and that my parish is where I should be. I just don’t know.
I want to do God’s will and not my own. Any advice?
