Religious Liberty

Religious Liberty is especially important for us Americans.  After all, the pilgrims came here for religious freedom.  What happened after that is well, human concupiscence.  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is planning a Fortnight for Freedom.  On June 21 (I'll remind you.) we are invited to pray a fortnight until July 4th, for religious freedom in our country.  There are suggestions for the fortnight, also.

The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking. Life is, there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it. You can simply experience it. Visit my site for more information.Thank you.
