Grateful for Our Freedom and …

July 4th, 2012 | Posted by Sr. Marilyn Marie in Uncategorized

I sometimes wonder about how much I take for granted when it comes to freedom and democracy, standard of living, and the many blessings that I experience each day.  Even in the midst of the aftermath of the storms this past week, I was blessed to have a home, electricity, food and a place to cool off in the excessive heat.  Days like this when we celebrate these many gifts call me to a twofold action: 1) I, like Mary, acknowledge that all I have received is because of God’s goodness and love, and 2) I renew my commitment to prayer and action for those who are subject to the effects of  poverty and injustice.

A Happy and Grateful Fourth of July to all!
