Hi all

I ask you humbly to pray for me as:

1) If feel sincerly that I have not been a very humble or good catechumen so far
2) I sometimes get some frustrated and even angry here, like in the headcover = legalistic thread in conversions issues forum
3) I do struggle with passions and after a good run on the pure side, boom, I am back at the dark side.

When I find myself asking God if there is any hope for me, I understand that things are not so OK.
More personal that I perhaps should have been, but I want to do better and be more humble.

So please, pray for me.
God bless you.

You're definitely not alone, especially with numbers 1 and 3. I've been in a rut basically since Christmas, although I struggle with skepticism probably more than with passions. But then, I guess we've all got our own Cross to bear... pray for me as well, please.
