Veteran's Day

11-12-2017Fr. Larry Merta

Saturday, November 11th is Veterans Day. Here’s another great moment at the Payson Rodeo. Our Catholic Churches justly display an American Flag in our Church. I have placed our Flag more prominently in the sanctuary to remind us that our country has been largely free from strife on our borders because of the men and women in uniform. Never take freedom for granted, even in this country, especially our right to public worship. By public, I mean not restricted to merely a private gathering that has nothing to offer the rest of civil society. The percentage of Catholic young believers continues to decrease over the longer analysis but that doesn’t mean faith is out of style. It might mean that some people think it is possible to have faith only in themselves. But sooner or later, that sort of faith runs dry. In the end, the fullest sense of who we are and what we are supposed to become happens when we accept Jesus on His terms of friendship.
