Video: Saturday reflection: Anxiety, Abuse, God & Mary

Here is the reflection I gave during Vespers at St. Clement Eucharistic Shrine on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017.  The reflection is based on the first reading for the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A: Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31.

I wasn’t comfortable with my written reflection because of the topics.  But recent news about sexual abuses cases, especially at a nearby music school, prompted my heart to say something, anything.  Turning things over to God, I decided to speak with an outline for notes.  An outline was great if I regularly checked it.  I didn’t.  So toward the end, I felt I was just rambling and cut off the reflection early.

Afterward, I felt like I bombed the whole reflection.  Two people complimented me.  If you found it helpful, great.  If not, just forget about it.
