Ummmm, I need prayer


#1

I’m feeling weird & I don’t know why. I don’t know if I lost my faith or what, but, I sure am not on fire anymore. I have asked myself if I still believe in God (AND, I’m pretty sure I do), and if I believe Jesus is His Son (again, I think so), BUT, even as such, I don’t know what I’m having issues with, if it’s the Eucharist or what…I just don’t know what my problem is, but, I’ve somewhre along the way, lost faith, I guess. I just don’t get it anymore. I’ve prayed to God that I follow His Church always, but, for some reason, I’m doubting it. (I’ve though, “Maybe it’s not the Catholic Church” – which would leave Protestant, and the two cults – and, I don’t think I can go along with that.) I’ve wondered if I could go back to athiest, and, I don’t think so.

I don’t know…maybe it’s because I was freaking out about God’s forgiveness & all & this is the result…I don’t know.

I don’t know what I’m not getting, but, I’m asking for all your prayers because I want it back.

P.S. I’m not trolling or anything, but, I am posting this both in Apologetics & The Water Cooler.

Thank you all so much in advance.

Pick up a copy of the Diary of Divine Mercy by Saint Faustina.I deal with excessive guilt too.It is a spiritual cross.We have to remember His Mercy as well as his justice.:slight_smile:

You are in my prayers, I know when I go through bouts of depression ( I am BiPolar ) I get that way. Are you depressed? Talk to your priest I am sure he has dealt with this kind of feeling before. :slight_smile:

Dear friend

I am praying for you.

Spiritual Highs are an endurance of the Spiritual Lows.

Stick it out, this feeling will pass. Persevere.

God Bless you and much love and peace to you

Teresa

I think you need to go over why catholics belive what we believe,like the vision of mary to saint bernadette,to be honest if ever i feel doubt at some point,i think back to bernadette and imagine i was her seeing mary,bernadette DID see mary and thats why lourdes is existing,just remember the bible.
