True Spiritual Freedom
This is Independence Day Weekend – the 4th of July!
We pray for our country and all its citizens and residents in a very special way. The bright promises of freedom that our nation tries to project to the world are so important!
We can think especially of the freedom of worship and religion. We want to respect the beliefs of all, as we share our powerful belief in God with others. It is in respect and dialogue that true progress can be made.
Prayer for our nation is especially important in this. The more we pray for and with others, when possible, the more God will touch the hearts of everyone in true spiritual freedom.
So, we thank God for our country this weekend. May we be people who work together to insure the freedoms of all. May God give us loving hearts and, especially as followers of Jesus Christ, may we show his redemptive and saving love to everyone.
May God bless America and help us to be a sign of hope and love to all the world!
And let us continue to pray for each other.
Fr. Bob Schneider, Pastor
