I have been reflecting on where God’s will has taken me and amazed at the way in which He has led me to this point. I know that this path is not easy for the culture is so loud and, for the most part, blind, but it is a road well worth taking.
This is also the season where I thank and, at the same time, nod my head at the passion that my mother induced in me. We never missed the political conventions, or any political broadcast, including the over 400 days that the Iranians held American workers in the American Embassy in the 1970′s, and the Watergate hearings. My mother was greatly influenced by John F Kennedy, and his call to service and wanted her children to be civic minded and care.
It has been a long time since there has been such a choice developing in the electorate. And I have no idea where this one is going.
But I am so proud of the emotional speech given be Rick Santorum last night. It was a little corny, but he expressed the effect of the Catholic Faith in the American experience really well. My mother, a life long Democrat, would have been so proud to hear this.
And Michael Voris puts the whole thing together pretty well today. It is so great to be authentically Catholic, and to put the Catechism at the center of our family life. As I noted above, it is not always easy, and I feel sorry for my children, who are faced with incredible challenges as they try to live Christ’s Truth. But the Roman Catholic church is being realigned, and the call is out that the eternal Church will Prevail.
And in this country, we have one phrase which sounds stereotypic, but is so central. ‘All men are created to be equal and have inalienable right including Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. If you think about it, those are also Christian tenets as well.
May God Help us!
