Back on September 23, the feast of St. Padre Pio, I issued a “worry list” challenge and invited readers to join along.
The challenge consisted of writing out a worry list. I came up with five big things that were, so to speak, keeping me awake at night. I placed that worry list in the back of my Bible, a symbol for placing my worries in God’s hands. I marked my calendar three months forward, December 23, with a note to check back on my worry list. I also promised to check back here.
I did indeed check back on my worry list on December 23. But I did not check back here. Please allow me to close the loop here and now.
