Could you please continue praying for me.ÂÂ  I returned to school about a week ago, and things haven't been going very well.ÂÂ  I feel extremely lonely lots of the time, and I have difficulty communicating with others, both on faith and ordinary subjects.ÂÂ  One of the few girls I like is now dating someone I know, and it's very painful, especially when there are few girls at the school with whom you're compatible.ÂÂ  Also I'm suffering from very bad depression.ÂÂ  I sense that perhaps God is calling me to Orthodoxy, but the heartfelt pain is so much now that I am afraid that I might become Orthodox for the wrong reasons.ÂÂ  However, I'm certainly becoming at least Eastern Catholic.ÂÂ  It's just very difficult to make rational decisions when so many things are in turmoil.ÂÂ  Please pray that God give me some peace so that I can see things more clearly before making a decision to convert.ÂÂ  Thank you.ÂÂ

Lord, have mercy.

The Mor has spoken. Let his word endure unto the ages of ages.
