Living Freely and Bravely

03-18-2018Rev. Msgr. Ellsworth R. Walden

“O, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” These words from our national anthem that is sung so often at public gatherings are printed as a question in the version that I read. It is not so much asking does a flag or what it symbolizes wave over our land, but are we truly free and brave? We as Catholics have an even more powerful and inspirational sign hanging in places in our home and in places of honor and reverence in our church buildings, we have crucifixes with Jesus hanging on them. There is no greater example of love, freedom, and bravery.
