Get into the ring! How this works...

This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily idea...my main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!

At a nearby parish at the Communion Rite a prayer is prayed this way:

Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin and protect us from all needless anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I thought it very odd. Adding the word "needless". And it made me think . . . Is there a difference between "anxiety" and "needless anxiety"? I think not.

John said...

Good point. But there may be a key difference. Generally speaking, anxiety has a negative connotation. But, depending on the context, anxiety is a normal and healthy reaction to an identifiable stressful situation.
Anxiety for the right reason is good. So, we do not need to be protected from all anxiety. Needless anxiety is not normal or healthy because it is a reaction to either a situation that does not exist or a perceived situation that does not exist. Needless anxiety is anxiety for no reason or the wrong reason. In the Gospel reading for October 4th, Martha's anxiety is for the wrong reason.
