I point you to a fine artist's stream who on the 4th of July quotes "A TRUE PATRIOT IS ONE WHO CAN DEFEND HIS COUNTRY AGAINST HIS GOVERNMENT" Enjoy that freedom associate, hippiechic, at flickr.com/photos/hippiechic/ ______________ Pray for the criminal justice system in Texas and elsewhere as some start thinking there may be a PROBLEM or two in how justice is administered not so fairly across the board. Texas' Dallas County released its 19th innocent prisoner after years of incarceration. Thanks God, for the science of DNA. Texas' Harris County has had executed more prisoners than any State in the USA. Question: Do you really think innocent accuseds are not wrongfully imprisoned and even killed in the Government's Name for justice's sake? Question: If Texas can do that so BADLY and not have to abide by a judgment of the WORLD Court, is your local, state, national JUSTICE system for accused criminals any good at well achieving its goals? Remedy: How does a county, state, nation fix such WRONGS? Think, pray, and enjoy your freedom as millions are incarcerated today in USA and else where in this World of our making. These somber thought should be part of every USA Independence Day, which can be enjoyable for us and our loved ones, who are not behind bars and fences, if we want it to be. ___________________ www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/m/mark_twain.html Mark Twain , USA Philosophizing Writer Quotes Born November 30, 1835; Died April 21, 1910 The more you explain it, the more I don't understand it.

Facing up to personal sin is hard enough. Facing up to evils and failures in a society seems particularly hard. Our civic pride and sense of citizenship contribute to this as does the heroic involvement of the country, citizens in the World Wars and other efforts for justice and freedom. Nevertheless, the Prophet Amos speaks words that can stir up in us both repentance and a renewed desire to promote the good of our nation and its people, through the common good, and as a leader in the world. Amos declares the requirement of justice and mercy in his preaching. In the third chapter he speaks of the people brought to freedom, favored by God among all other nations of the earth. God's covenant is far deeper and significant than any bond one can observe in the natural order. In this passage, he leads the hearer to recognize the widespread injustice in the land that destroys the poor. The cheating becomes stealing. The stealing becomes the source of physical harm to human life. God expects justice. It is part of the covenant. God expects mercy. It is God's great desire: a people whose gracious acts reveal God. Psalm 119 provides a way out! This Psalm meditates on the law of the Lord. The ordinances of God's law, its precepts and decrees guide the faithful. The heart is stirred up to obey, as an act of fidelity! To follow the law of God contributes to justice in society. In the Gospel, Jesus calls Matthew to this new way of life. From sin, cheating, greed and stealing, he is led by Jesus to be an instrument by which sinners are introduced to Jesus and the mercy of God. How is it that each of us is a Matthew? Called; the object of mercy; to be a sign to other sinners; to be a source of mercy. This deep awareness of justice and mercy, which God has revealed as central to the covenant and which we know in the person of Jesus, is what the Church prays for today: for this people, our country, blessed with freedom and much bounty, to renew again and again. In the prayer over the gifts, the Church prays for the Eucharist to strengthen us, to make the good news of Christ known and the country dedicated to God's service. That would be justice and mercy. In the Prayer after Communion it prays for the faithful to recognize the vision in the Eucharist of the unity and joy of heaven. This longing would help the faithful to work for unity and joy on earth. It seems the scriptural word invites us to receive the admonition of the prophet Amos for repentance and reform where injustice prevails, to recognize how I find myself in Matthew and repenting become an effective instrument of mercy, and through the covenant bond to be motivated to work for the good of a nation for which we are grateful. - Rev. Stephen H. Gratto | email: [email protected] ____________________________ Free, I received below from [email protected] Peace to All! Below please find the official English translation of Fr. Danko's commentary on Our Lady's June 25, 2008 message as provided by the Information Center in Medjugorje. Our next mailing will be Our Lady's July 25 message to the world. God Bless! Steve and Ana Shawl The Medjugorje Web www.medjugorje.org -------------------------------- BE JOYFUL CARRIERS OF PEACE AND LOVE "Dear children! Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to follow me and to listen to my messages. Be joyful carriers of peace and love in this peaceless world. I am with you and I bless you all with my Son Jesus, the King of Peace. Thank you for having responded to my call." Message of June 25, 2008 It was 27 years ago when Our Lady presented herself in Medjugorje as the Queen of Peace. Throughout all these years she has patiently taught us and called us as a real loving mother to celebrate and practice the sacraments. She has been calling us to convert, to fast, to do penance and to worship Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. In her message marking the 27th anniversary of her apparitions she says that with great joy in her heart she calls us to follow her and to listen to her messages. While thinking about her latest message, as well as the others that we have heard so far, we should never forget the rule of St. Louis Grignion de Montfort saying: To Jesus through Mary! Mary always gathers people around her Son. She calls to a complete surrender to Jesus as only he can make each of us the whole person worthy of Heaven. Our Lady gives us an example of how to be faithful to God, how to live out our faith and how to live by faith. She took part in the acts of the Holy Spirit from the very beginning. Therefore the Church, which is also the work of the Holy Spirit, prays together with the one to whom God has done great deeds. Our Lady stands before us as a great gift, as the most beautiful image of the Church. She speaks in plain words that attract so many people from all over the world. Her messages are easily understood by both, the smallest and the eldest. Our Lady calls us to be carriers of peace and love in this peaceless world. Today we witness serious dangers the whole of mankind faces, such as nuclear armament, various diseases, global warming, poverty. People live in great fear. Our Lady knows that. That is why she has been calling us, Christians, the faithful, to be carriers of peace and love in this peaceless world since the very start of her apparitions. On the third day of her apparition Our Lady gave us the first of her great messages saying: "Peace, peace, peace – and only peace!". After that she repeated twice: "Peace must reign between man and God, and among people, too!" A real peace may come only from God who has become “our peace“ in Jesus through Mary. (Eph. 2,14). "This world cannot give" this peace (John 14,27). That is why Christ commanded His apostles to carry it through the world (cf. Matt 10,11) so that all the people may become "men of peace" (Luke 10,6). Sometimes we tend to seek the source of restlessness in others because it is easier to act in this way. However, we must first find this source in ourselves and then deal with it. The source of restlessness is always a sin that one should renounce thus creating conditions for God to work in us. At the end of her message, Our Lady blesses us with her Son Jesus, the King of Peace. Dear worshipers of the Queen of Peace, let us say yes to peace in our hearts, let us choose God thus allowing Jesus to become the Path, the Truth and Life in us. Fr. Danko Perutina Medugorje 26/06/2008 ______________________ Thought you would enjoy this. Have a marvelous INDEPENDENCE holiday weekend. In the beginning . . . On the first day, God created the dog and said: 'Sit all day by the door of your house, drool, and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.' The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?' So God agreed. On the second day, God created the monkey and said: 'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.' The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?' And God agreed. On the third day, God created the cow and said: 'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.' The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?' And God agreed again. On the fourth day, God created man and said: 'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.' But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?' 'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.' So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch, drool, and bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service. _____________________ EXPLORE # 130 on Sunday, July 6, 2008; 251 on 07-04-2008; # 276 and # 433 on 07-05-2008
