As Catholics, we are most blessed with the Communion of Saints. If you have not read the Diary of St. Faustina, I would encourage you to do so. It is filled with much inspiration. One reflection that may help you in this time of confusion are words spoken by Jesus to Faustina:

"My child, know that the greatest obstacles to holiness are discouragement and an exaggerated anxiety...sensitiveness and discouragement are the fruits of self-love."

Pray for our new Holy Father; he is praying for you!

Well thank you for this, but I disagree that I am committing the sin of self-love.
