Go out into the mountains area or some where you get a nice view of your surroundings , i've noticed this is when prophets get messeges and interventions when nobody is around
Stand on that peak look up in the sky and say
Listen oh holy one ! master of master ! king of kings ! creator of the universe!
Why go through such pains to hide your self !
I want to dedicate my life to you , i want to represent you to the masses , i want to be proud and sure of whom i am following !
But you make it so difficult
tonight is your night ! Show your self or a clear sign or forever hold your peace as figment of my imagination!
Good day sir!
I SAID GOOD DAY SIR

I will be completely honest with you. You are yourself. You and only you know what is the truth to you. Not to put down religious people, but ask yourself, was i created by a person floating in the sky, or was i formed, through thousands of years of evolution. And if your fear of eternal damnation is all that keeps you from leaving your religion, I don't think that is the right religion for you... A religion based on fear is hardly a religion at all in my opinion. Be yourself, and if by some odd chance you are punished by the magical floating man in the sky, then would he really judge you badly for not worshiping him out of fear? A man who would send someone to "hell" for doing what they believed is hardly a man at all, let alone a god.. Follow your heart, be true to yourself. Seeking truth is the best thing you could do for now though, maybe take a break from being catholic, visit a Jewish temple, or a Buddhist monastery. Did you now catholics are literally the only religion that believe their god will banish them to "hell" just because a person didn't believe? In Judaism they believe god will send you to heaven, not based on your beliefs, but by your actions in life. In closing, I feel you need to search within, rather than without. Meditate on it, take an hour or two, sit down, and learn who you are, who you want to be. Fearing leaving your religion just because you don't want to go to hell is selfish, and being selfish is a sin. So no matter what you do, you are going to said "hell" if one exists. So don't fear leaving your religion, and don't fear joining a new one, after all, all gods will give you a heaven, not only the catholic one...
