Marble bust of the Greco-Egyptian deity Serapis. Roman copy after a Greek original (4th cent. BCE) made by the sculptor Bryaxis for the Serapeum in Alexandria. Now in the Museo Pio-Clementino, Vatican City.
I think I am losing my faith. Not because something bad happened to me and I think it is unfair, or because I'm to lazy to go to the Mass. I /want/ to believe and to be confident that there is someone out there hearing my prayers. It is just I /can't/. I can't cope with the amount of abstraction, and everything starts to seem so dumb - candles, flowers, words - didn't "Pagans" do the same? Is there anything I can do to stop doubting? (It's OK if you can't answer, I understand it's very random.)
