Happy 4th (on the 5th)

4th of July Fireworks © GodAloneSufficeth.com, 2011.

I once again find myself apologizing for posting so late. I am away from my home computer and I am still learning how to use this darned laptop. In addition, yesterday was packed with patriotic activities. However, I do find time to post now, so I will.

 As I mentioned above, I spent the weekend in Door County. One of the toughest issues to tackle, when you’re on vacation, is finding a good Catholic Church to attend Holy Mass. Yesterday was no exception. Since it was the 4th of July, my family and I figured there would be Mass, at the very least there would be a Catholic Church with its doors unlocked. After all, it’s our Country’s birthday – what better way to spend it than with a few moments before the Blessed Sacrament. Well, we figured wrong. We tried the doors of all three of the local Catholic Churches and they were all locked. We have many issues in our day and age – moral and political. How can we expect to settle the abortion, homosexual union, or euthanasia issues, or even the debt crises for that matter, if our Churches are all locked on the 4th of July???!!!!!!!!! Unthinkable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 For God to truly Bless America, we must cooperate with His grace. Sacred Heart of Jesus – protect us, Immaculate Heart of Mary – pray for us, Holy Heart of St. Joseph – defend us!! God Bless America!!!
