St. Teresa's bookmark is one of my favorite quotes. The most effective way I have learned to deal with anxiety is to attend daily Mass and to adore Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration as often as possible by making a Holy Hour, as Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen did. Nothing else is more relaxing to the soul than to spend time with Jesus in the Eucharist.

Thank you for this post, Hector.

God bless you,

Lorna

1 Pet 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

Amen! Everyting passes, only God is forever. I'll remember that.

I prefectly agree with St. Teresa of Avila.I know how is to lack the presence of God.
Last summer i had several bad panick attacks followed by neuralgia.I just ended my experimental work in the lab and i was about to start writing my Ph.D thesis.I think that i was really drained after few years of constant and intense stress.My doctor said that i had burn-out syndrome and depression.In that time of my life i understood that what i was lacking was a solid spirituality.I came to understand what does it mean to build your house on rock vs. to build your life on sand.
I was in that sorry situation because my life did not have a solid foundation.I was just dragging my spiritual feet since many years...

Paula, everything you said was in past tense. I sure hope and pray that things are much better now that you have God at your core. Jean, Lorna, and Patti, thanks for sharing and making this reflection come alive with your perspectives. Last week I was very down because of a difficult situation I have been dealing with. This weekend and today I'm feeling very positive and happy. Did anything in the situation changed? Not a single bit. I did. I prayed and prayed so that I could put my trust in God, He never changes. All is well now...

Paula

Hector, i used the past tense because the situation has changed significantly.I am happy to hear that you are fine now.
God bless
