From Fr. Lawler Dear everyone,
Hello and thank you for the overwhelming welcome that I received from some old faces, perhaps wise faces would be more gentlemanly of me, and some new ones.
For those of you who do not know me, and to refresh the memory of those who do, I am subject of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Meaning that I am British by citizenship, Scottish by nationality.
I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I am a cradle Catholic. I attended Catholic schools. I actually went to a Catholic boarding school that also functioned as a junior seminary, the last one in Scotland.
Following that I went to seminary in the Netherlands (Holland). While there I studied philosophy under Louvain University (which is actually in Belgium). For reasons that are not really worth sharing, I left seminary and returned to Scotland.
I then trained to be an RN. My parents wanted me to do medicine, or law, I had other ideas. I spent nearly twenty years as an RN. Working in trauma, infectious disease unit and in management. My career took me to England, the Channel Islands and the US (Massachusetts). I loved my job! Being an RN brought me closer to my Faith. I had fallen away from the Faith. Despite having brothers who are Priests and parents who are a great example.
I began to go to Adoration, eventually going to Confession. My first Confession after many years was two hours, not because of the Priest, because I didn't want to miss any sin. I was sweating, crying, laughing. When we finished the Priest smiled at me and gave me ONE Our Father as a penance. I felt a bit short changed. I said to him, “have you been listening? I did some major stuff!”. His reply....... “I want you really, really pray this Our Father, the prayer that the Savior gave us. Take your time, reflect on the beauty of the prayer.”
I didn't really get it, but I have never had something have so much influence on my life. I entered religious life. This involved praying the Our Father at least 20 times a day. I don't think that a day goes by that I don't pray about 10 Our Fathers. And almost every time I pray the Our Father I remember how blessed I am to have a God who loves me so much to adopt me and have me back. And how totally stupid I was to think that I didn't need Confession. Without God in my life, I did a lot of really dumb things. With God in my life, still some dumb stuff, but I have the means to fix a lot of it.
My religious community sent me to Rome to study Theology, Philosophy (again) and Spirituality. I became temporarily professed, took vows, but did not want to be a Priest. I was often caught up in how the things that I had done, although forgiven, made me not worthy to be a Priest. My superiors felt differently. Under obedience, I had to start asking God if this was the correct path for me. I eventually found myself in southern France in a small Benedictine community.
Through Bishop Hebda I was invited to return to the US and he had the perfect place for me to live. And the right kind of Priest for me to be with.
The place, Holy Rosary. The Priest, Father Libby. That was 8 years ago and, as the old expression goes, the rest is history.
If you wonder about the obvious gaps in the story, then listen to my homilies and my radio show! God bless you all and once again thank you, Father Scott
