I Am Living In A World Of Confusion And Sadness

by Anonymous

Okay, so here it goes...

Before, about a year ago or so, I was this reserved and contented woman who couldn't care less for the world (as in I was super detached). I felt happy being like that. Then, a few months went on, and now, I'm this worldly woman who has ambitions of things that are of the world (as in mostly of the world). I don't give enough focus on Heaven anymore, but actually give more concern for earthly things. It's depressing to want things knowing it's impossible to have them. Hence, I feel quite sad, or somewhat depressed. Of course, I'm aware I'm not THAT unfortunate. I mean, I live comfortably, eat three times a day, and have all the basic needs. (sigh...) I know that I have to do is to gain focus on Heaven again, but it's not as easy as it sounds. I'm just begging for prayers that entail whatever it is that would be of God's Will. :)

Be Strong In Your Time Of Confusion And Sadness
by: Jerald Archer

I understand your situation and hope I can help.

I would urge you to read St. John of the Cross' "Dark Night of the Soul". This is an excellent work that deals with many factors of your situation.

[Be advised the above website has some Catholic literature including Dark Night of the Soul but is not exclusively Catholic nor are all the books they recommend.]

Do a general search on spiritual dryness and you will find many writing of many Saints on the subject. It is such a personal matter, but often has the very same elements for all. Don't condemn yourself (but take heed to remedy it), as the Spiritual Dryness is often necessary in order to keep us aware and focused on the constant blessings of God we can sometimes take for granted. This is normal. We are human.

In an attempt to achieve that "happiness" that all humans seek, we can too often turn to our own selves and attempt to find it, usually without much success, thus leaving us in desolation and belief we have failed. No great success has ever been achieved without many failures experienced before we achieved success. We attempt to find satisifaction in those material things of the world, when really we know it is a deception to do so. You seem to have this wisdom already, so you are not as bad off as you might imagine.

It can be a painful experience, but one that will pass. Pray the rosary every day and go to confession and assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and this will be of great aid in your battle. I urge you to speak to a priest as well.

The key is prayer and lots of it. Pray that God will direct you in understanding His Will and know that He understands you better than you understand yourself. Have confidence and faith to know that He will provide all the necessary strength and wisdom for you. There is very little you can do yourself except pray and not faint.

Know that we are all praying for you and that all will be well. God Bless You.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
