Father Leo Patalinghug's thoughts on July 4th

... this great meditation by Fr. Leo concerning the importance of our nation’s Independence Day. He really sums it up in the following statements: "I believe we are called to evaluate what “independence” really means, and how the modern understanding of that word has led us down wrong paths – paths that have made us dependent on the almighty dollar, rather than the almighty God, our soul’s greatest treasure. We have become dependent on drugs, alcohol, bad relationships, and other things that destroy us from within, while forgetting to depend on the power of Grace, the love of our families, and the reality of prayer that strengthens us from within."
