I have just returned from a 12 day road trip with a friend who needed a companion along for the ride to Texas where she had the task of preparing her parent’s home to be sold. It was also her goal to retrieve some precious treasures still in the house which were too large to be carried on a plane. One such jewel was a cradle her father had made for his own children, including my friend, and which has now been slept in by most of his grandchildren.
Our trip each way took three days in the car so we had a LOT of time to read and discuss and read and discuss. It was a kind of “retreat from the world” which whizzed by us, as we rolled along from one state to the next, and an opportunity to step outside our daily routines and spend the kind of time you generally only WISH you had with a good friend.
Conservative news media engages the enemy 24/7 in a battle of politics. We Catholics need to remind ourselves the battle is not one party vs. another, but one faith opposed to the other. Man vs. God. Whose side are you on? If you are committed to the answer, God, then, start today living like you mean it. Throw off the politically correct chains that have you bound and be a WITNESS for what you believe. Stop living on the defense and let your life be for others the light out of the darkness of all the errors of communism/socialism, in other words, godlessness. Stop just calling yourself a Catholic and start acting like one!
