July 4th

As we recently celebrated the July 4th holiday I am sure that many of us reflected on the state or our nation.  Although too many basic values have eroded in popular culture I still believe our nation includes millions of people who believe in God and the truth He has revealed to us.  God is our loving creator and we are His creatures, nothing can change that fundamental truth.  Although many choose to believe they can create themselves, as believers we know this is simply foolishness. 

I have said to many recently that we must remember the oft spoken words of St. John Paul II, "Be not afraid".  Let us move forward not in fear but in joy and hope in the truth that God has revealed to us.
