Restoring faith through life's storms is difficult at best, but restore it we must! It has been said that the more we pray with each other the deeper our faith grows and spreads. If one falls, we all fall; if one stands it makes it easier for others to stand as well. The "if she/he can do it, well, so can I!" mentality is why we go to Mass each Sunday and whenever possible in between, to be together in a mass of believers to encourage each other. There is power in numbers; remember that? There is power in the presence of each and every one of us when we gather together. As Jesus said, "where two or more are gathered in my name, I will be there too."
So, when you feel that your faith is weakening, or even shattered by life's events, pull up your bootstraps, grab your Bible and head to Mass, or gather a friend or more and have a prayer session. Don't go it alone, it doesn't work that way. We must be together in company with each other. God in creation said that man must not be alone, so he created a woman and together they made more people to gather with.

We are a people of God, the body of Christ, and the buzz word here is "we." Don't go it alone. Reach out.
