He was one of Rochester, New York’s greatest athletes in the 1950s. When I was sixteen years old and in my physical prime, and he was in his 40’s, he beat me in the 40-yard dash like I was standing still. He could have played for anybody. The Cubs wanted to talk to him. The Yankees would have if he’d been interested.

The Ten Commandments are not good because God gave them to us; he gave them to us because they are good.

|Each flag represents a life lost to abortion.|
When Maria Wanchic of Bismarck, ND was thirteen years old, she thought of all the lives lost to abortion and imagined putting up a memorial to represent them as individuals. “At the time, I thought about crosses,” she said.
That was two decades ago. This Memorial Day weekend, Maria accomplished her childhood dream to honor the life of each baby lost to abortion in North Dakota. Volunteers helped her place sixty-six thousand pink and blue flags on the north side of the state Capitol law. The flags are a colorful testimony to each life, rippling in the breeze and making the statement, "I was here, I count."

|Mary, Untier of Knots|
In honor of the month of May, here are two beautiful devotions to Mary. I’d love to hear the results if you participate in either of these.
Pope Francis’s Devotion
The first one, “Mary Undoer of Knots” also known as “Our Lady Untier of Knots," I came across in Dr. Matthew Bunson’s new book, Pope Francis. Bunson, one of America’s leading authorities on the papacy and the Church, gives a personal glimpse into the life of Jorge Mario Bergoglio from his early days as a “street priest” to his work as a Cardinal, and finally his appointment as Pope Francis.

Lately, when I check the next-day weather report, I half-expect fire and brimstone to be in the forecast. It seems that it should be “time’s up” for the world’s silliness aka spiritual degradation to the nth degree.
I cannot help but wonder why God is holding back. He is so very patient with us. It would seem that we have more than earned some chastisements.
