Dear Friends,

I was attending Mass the other day and as I left Church, I noticed a flyer on one of the counters that had a prayer for us to recite at meal time on Independence Day. There was no mention of its author. I took the flyer home and reread it again earlier today and thought this would help us fully embrace our love for America. While we have divisions creating conflict in our communities, this nation continues to be the beacon of hope to elevate the human condition, by the standards documented in its rich history to overcome oppression.

 The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The Emancipation Proclamation, The Gettysburg Address and the values of sustenance we practice by the liberty and freedom in our respective Judeo-Christian religious accords, is remembered once again.

On this day, we ask Our Lord to help us overcome the hatred and despondency that has discouraged America's optimism for the future. Today, we celebrate the Independence of thought and mind, to live a life worthy of courage, bravery and integrity. The truth will set you free!       


O God our Creator,

With the founders of our country

we believe that you have given all people

"certain inalienable rights...among these, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

We thank you for our country - for the freedom and opportunity it gives us,

and for its beauty and bounty.

As we celebrate with this meal, we ask you to bless our food and to bless our nation.

Give us leaders inspired by its ideals

and mindful of the rights of all people.

Help us to use our gifts wisely,

and to extend your care to the needy of the world.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.


May God continue to bless America.

 Happy 4th of July!

Thanks again for your continuous support.

Please remember to view our previous post - The Oath of Responsibility - 2019 as we recognize our duty and responsibility to uphold the foundational principles, espoused in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
