Monday of Lent Week 3, or How to Deal with Stress

Collect: May your unfailing compassion, O Lord, cleanse and protect your Church, and, since without you she cannot stand secure, may she be always governed by your grace.

Well, not much happened today. It was just a lot of work. And I mean A LOT of work.

Deadlines, responsibilities, etc.

Sometimes it just feels like a lot. I know I left the office well, exhausted.

What’s the easiest way to deal with stress?

To me, the easiest way is going to Mass or Adoration. It just so happens my home parish has evening Adoration followed by Mass. Once you realize that Heaven is on Earth and God is right there in the Eucharist in front of you, why should you be stressed? There is literally and objectively nothing better that could be in front you.

And so that’s the easiest way to deal with stress. Deal with stress by getting yourself to Heaven. Then continue to work for the sake of bringing yourself and others to Heaven.

That is our calling.

Have a blessed Lent.
