Feeling Angry Right now, at Catholic Church
« on: June 02, 2008, 10:23:30 AM »
Could you please pray for me?  I'm still working for the Catholic Church, but only for two more weeks.  I'm feeling very angry on the inside though.  I don't want to feel angry, but this year has been extremely tough for me.  I've worked a lot for this teaching job, even on weekends, even when dealing with illness, have lost much sleep over work, and then I'm criticized a lot.  The vast majority of the [Catholic] students treat me with disrespect, and I don't really feel supported as much as I could be by the other people here.  I'm not teaching next year, luckily.  I just want to get through this horrible experience without harboring any ill feelings towards Catholics.  I'm even wanting to hate Catholicism; it now seems so perverted to me.  I know this is wrong, and I don't want to feel this way.  I just want out of Catholicism completely.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy and free Your servant from the circumstances of unnerving coincidence among a sea of misguided individuals. That those misguided see their misconceptions so that healing and reconciliation prevail. God bless Your servant's journey to Orthodoxy.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
