This morning during my prayer meditation, I had this sense that to live our Catholic faith fully during this age I was like a salmon swimming up stream. Living in the Pacific Northwest this a vivid analogy. It seems that to be a faithful Catholic now we are fighting the good fight. The popular media is against religious freedom. It is seemingly not socially acceptable to be against Gay marriage, socialized health care, and women's freedom to birth control. What has happened to what is normal? No one wants to offend anyone. Who really are we offending when we support Gay marriage, abortion and a socialized health care ? We are offending God! I personally do not want to offend God. It is difficult to swim against the current. I am persevering, standing firm with strength and courage that only our Lord can give. I encourage all Catholics to stand with me too. Let's be brave!
Be a source of encouragement and joy always. In your heart is your eternal desire. It flames to the pits of your being, beaming and inflaming all that you do. A torch in the darkness. Guide others to the light.
For all of my Catholic friends I wish you a Happy Fourth of July in America. Let's not take lightly our right to practice any religious faith in America. This faith gives us the foundation to live our life the way God wants us to. It makes us better human beings with a moral compass to do what is right and just. Our faith the spirit of vitality and wellness. I pray that we stay well as a nation. That our core essence is pure and clean. We are a great nation founded as one nation under God. Let's stay that way as the United State
