It's Flag Day; Fly the Colors

Today is flag day. Put on your red, white, and blue and, if you have a flag pin, wear it. This country was founded on godly principles and is still so attractive to the world that many want to come here.

So don't let the America haters get you down. If you love God first, you will strive to build your family and community in the image of the Holy Family at Nazareth. Pray and work for justice, especially for the weak and vulnerable.

Americans are blessed to be born in a country that was built on respect for the individual. We've had some bumps in the road, but our pledge still gives men the greatest hope of "liberty and justice for all." So wave the flag proudly and work to make her truly represent the hope she promises.

To paraphrase St. Thomas More, be your country's good servant, but God's first.

  1. Put mine out on the covered balcony of my apartment. A nice full sized flag in a stand, on a chair so it's better viewed.

    I'll respond to any complaints as the sun gets to setting.
