Best Kept Secrets of Religion: A Faith Response to “Garden Variety Anxiety

Watch Fr. Joachim Lally as he explores the the vague anxiety many of us feel daily.  Just what are we “vaguely anxious” about? Do we frequently look for “distractions” to help us deal with our anxieties about loneliness, aging, political issues, nuclear proximity, etc.? What is the primary difference between “anxiety” and “fear”? Any connection with the issues of alcohol, drugs, occasional “emotional meltdowns”? How do our religious practices possibly hinder or relieve these vague anxieties?
