Dearest, Father, where have you gone?
Removed are the days where we greeted the dawn.
Now plagued by bitterness and sorrow,
From a loss so deep--devoid of any tomorrow's.
Hurt and wounded, battered and torn;
Wretched we live in a world full of scorn.
How can we salvage memories of your redeeming grace?
Our lives are truly empty--only anguish we taste.
Lord, remove these barriers to end our plight.
Father, release us now to hasten your flight.
The cold, earthly abyss is too lonely an abode.
One more loving awaits in the heaven's above.
Father, ready the path, we all must take some day.
So we can rejoin you in a tranquil place to stay.
God will decide when it's time to meet again.
'Til then, we'll remember the love you gave us as a man.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
