Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness

I am always astounded at the wisdom of our founding fathers. Surely the hand of God was upon us because they got all the important things right, about the right to life and liberty. It's true we have horrific stains as well, that of slavery and abortion, but we squashed one evil and we will squash the other as well. God help us. Mary pray for us.

Wishing all Americans near and far a very happy Independence Day!!! I am especially pleased that our highest court has ruled in favor of religious liberty. That's definitely something to celebrate. But what a shock to learn it was won by a slim margin of 5-4. Sobering. Monsignor Pope has an excellent reflection on this: Wake up America: your liberty is on the line.

I love Eternal Father, strong to save and we sing it often at our parish.
