let me tell you about my conversion since my conversion, my Catholic husband left me, I have gave a baby up for adoption, my daughter is missing, I was in an abusive marriage for 6 years and he continues to manipulate and abuse me. He took my kids from me and the relationship I was in just crumbled on the advice of a so called friend. My girls 8 and 9 leave Monday to go back home to their control father who has a lot of money. Now someone tell me where is God in all of this.The priest in this new community I live in lives in a fantasy land He does not know the real world. Nothing good has happened to me since I converted even though I lead other to Christ I still am alone

so where is God What part of the Caatholic Faith has helped me

I am truly sorry at it seems that a lot has happened to you. Sometimes it is hard to accept God's plan for us and even harder to understand. Have you considered seeking out a spiritual adviser?

I pray that you find peace in our Lord Jesus Christ.

You can't judge a religion by the lives of those who don't practice it. All this suffering can be offered up to Christ for the sake of conversion of your husband's soul.
I will be praying for you.

Broken Toys
As children bring their broken toys,
With tears for us to mend;
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because he was my friend.
But then instead of leaving him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own.
At last I snatched them back and cried
"How could you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do?
You never did let go..."

I am so very sorry for your pain. You ask, "Where is God?" Although you may not feel His prescense, or see anything good in your life, He is with you. He loves you. Your Catholic faith can be your sustenance. The sacraments can feed your soul beyond what you can imagine or sense with your humanity. It is hard to be alone, with even a priest who you would like to be able to look up to not really in a position to be worthy of that trust. Just keep praying, even if it is just to say, "I do beleive, help my unbelief." He will not abandon you, He loves you. Bad things do happen in our lives, Catholic or not Catholic. As a Catholic, we can turn to the sacraments to feed us, hold onto the rosary as though we were holding onto a lifeline when we are drowning, cling to the truth that we move our will to assent to even when our feelings are those of deep sorrow, abandonement, and desolation. I will pray for you and know that not only does Christ love you, but you are loved through the Body of Christ on earth by many people you do not even know.
