I used to go to church every sunday and wear my cruicifix everyday. Now im terrified of walking into a church and my crusifix has been hanging on my wall for two year's. I have done wrong and i feel so ashamed i feel like i dont deserve to step into Gods house or wear his marker. I am still very religious. I fast on fridays and i try to be a good Catholic still. But i cant step foot into a church and i feel like im going to go to pergatory or worse Hell....

If you are still following God's word, I don't understand why you feel so guilty.  But I have a feeling that it's not so much the 2 years that you did not attend church. It is what happened during those 2 years that you feel guitly about.

I am so sorry you're not feeling well in your faith but understand...That we are saved by Gods grace, not by works there's nothing we can to do to be saved but have faith in Chrsit Jesus (Ephesians 2:8) the bible says all have sinned & fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) never let the enemy tell you that you're not worthy to be in Gods house...That's what Christ died for so that you can inter in under the blood of Jesus....I'm not perfect and I make mistakes everyday (we're human) but I thank God for Jesus and the blood that makes me clean "if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17) that's the enemies plan is to make us feel un worthy of Gods mercy & Love but the devil is a lie!!! and the father of lies. You dust yourself off my sister and get back into the family of faith. Read the book of Romans, Ephesians I'm here ask what ever you want. One thing I have learned is that we need each other to walk this life out hand in hand, struggle by struggle.

Have you reached out to a religious leader in your church?  It sounds like it may be time for that.  :)
