Memorial Day05-24-2015Fr. Don Kline
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This weekend, we remember Americans who pledged and even lost their lives to protect our country and preserve our freedom. The cost of freedom was and is paid for by those who are willing to lay down their lives for our great nation. We give thanks to God for all those who are willing to pay the ultimate price for our freedom. If you know a military service man or woman, make sure to thank them for their service and add a few prayers today for peace on earth.
Our Catechism of the Catholic Church helps us to understand what freedom means: Paragraph 1731-1734 says, "The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. The choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to "the slavery of sin." Freedom makes man responsible for his acts to the extent that they are voluntary. Progress in virtue, knowledge of the good, and self-discipline enhance the mastery of the will over its acts."READ MORE
