Bulletin for July 07, 2013 - and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Follow last week's homily, this week we celebrated Independence Day on July 4, which celebrates the founding of our country. Despite the movement away from the founding principles of our country (as well as Catholic teaching) in today's current climate, especially as it relates to virtue and morality, we are certainly blessed to live in a country where we are able to freely exercise our faith without the concern of retribution or negative consequences. We have been blessed by ancestors who have handed on to us a legacy of freedom on many levels, a legacy no other modern society has provided for its citizens. In that regard, let us thank God for those who had the foresight and inspiration to establish a society with so many freedoms, thank God for those who throughout our history have defended these freedoms (and given their lives for them) by service in the armed forces, and renew our devotion to God who has given us such a great blessing. We have been given an opportunity to live a life few other people in human history have been given, and as such we have a greater responsibility to take advantage of these freedoms and using them for God's greater glory, especially in living out our Catholic Faith. Let us continue to pray for our country to become more just, as we did in the Fortnight for Freedom, but also let us thank God for the great blessing of being a part of this society. May God Bless America!

           God Bless!
