July Fourth 2020 — May We Revive Our Flagging Faith

Founding Father John Adams had the right idea.

When he wrote a letter to his wife on July 3, 1776, he described how future generations of Americans ought to celebrate our nation's Independence Day.

He called for "Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

'Obedience is Better Than Sacrifice'

By Chris Sparks

In this time without public Masses, there’s one truth of our faith that’s been ringing in my ears.

Obedience is better than sacrifice.

Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices

as much as in obedience to the LORD’s command?

Obedience is better than sacrifice,

to listen, better than the fat of rams (1 Sam 15:22).
