I have never been an exemplary Catholic. This statement is even hard for me to write and express to you. This year especially took a large toll on my faith. I’ve had many health problems within my family and asked the typical question which one asks God, that being, “Why do you keep doing this to my family?” My faith became faint and non-existent. I kept praying that my family, especially my mother, would finally recover and could leave the hospital…but, my mother continued to get sicker. I noticed that prayer did nothing, thus causing me to lose faith completely in the one thing I thought was stable in my life, faith.
