Episode 52: Embracing the Cross and Overcoming Anxiety (w/ Dr. Kevin Majeres)

In this episode of The Catholic Gentleman, Sam and John are joined by a Catholic gentleman and psychiatrist of incredible wisdom and experience, Dr. Kevin Majeres. Kevin guides us in how to embrace our anxiety and challenges head-on as an opportunity for our sanctification provided by God. As GK Chesterton stated, “An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered.” However, as nice as that sounds, it is in this episode that we learn how to practically use these challenges as God’s will to help us become saints.

In this Episode We Discuss:

  • Reframing to Embrace Your Suffering
  • Accepting the Challenges We Face and Growing in Sanctification
  • The Cross is the Cure
  • Complaining is a form of practical atheism
  • And More

Dr. Kevin Majeres MD – Born and raised in Minnesota, Kevin attended college at the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas, and then stayed in Dallas for medical school and residency training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. After graduation, he completed a fellowship with the Beck Institute of Cognitive Therapy and Research in Philadelphia, and became a certified affiliate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. He is also a member of the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapists.

He is currently on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, where he teaches a weekly class on cognitive-behavioral therapy to psychiatrists-in-training at Beth-Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

He is a diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (i.e., board certified in psychiatry).

    I suffer from GAD. There is no particular phobia or “trigger” I suffer from. I am just a high-stress individual and take many meds to manage, not usually successfully. Prayer and calm music help and avoiding stressful situations.

    This was so applicable to my current struggles – Many many thanks to you guys & Dr. Kevin!

    If there is a way to get a transcript of this episode so I could read it slowly, meditate on it, & more easily go back to it from time to time, please let me know 🙂

      Thanks, Matthew. There are a couple of programs that we have been discerning, however, they take extensive time editing so we have not committed to any yet. I will keep you updated if we move forward with any.
