HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND
This year’s Fourth of July Celebration will definitely be different from what we are used to because of the Corona Virus Pandemic. But we will still be able to gather with our family and friends to celebrate the gift of freedom that we have here in the United States of America. We have our problems in this country but it is still the best place to live in all the world. We have been blessed by God to be citizens of the U.S.A. May God bless all of us and help our country to bring equality and justice to all.
As we read the Sunday readings this week our first reading reminds us that Jesus, our King, will bring peace to the nations. In the second reading we are told that we are called to live in the Spirit of Christ. In another words we are called to live in love and peace.
Finally our Gospel tells us that when we do have burdens and problems as an individual or a nation, we need to take them to Jesus in faith. It is by living the message of Jesus that we truly will be free.
GOD BLESS AMERICA ~ Msgr. Powell
