The Fourth of July

This is rather a sad Fourth of July. It is sad because this nation has placed herself into the hands of the enemies of all she has ever stood for. We have fallen away from our faith and our ideals, and have let ourselves in for a terrible chastisement. This has already started; how many of us notice?

We need to start wearing out the rosaries. We also need to remind ourselves of our glorious patrimony, before we throw it all away.

Pray also for our Marines currently engaged in a major offensive in Afghanistan.

Psalm 144

Blessed be the LORD, my Rock,
Who trains my hands for war,
and my fingers for battle;
my Rock and my Fortress,
my Stronghold and my Deliverer,
my Shield and He in whom I take refuge,
Who subdues the peoples under Him.
O LORD, what is man that Thou dost regard him,
or the son of man that Thou dost think of him?
Man is like a breath,
his days are like a passing shadow.
Bow Thy heavens, O LORD, and come down!
Touch the mountains that they smoke!
Flash forth the lightning and scatter them,
send out Thy arrows and rout them!
Stretch forth Thy hand from on high,
rescue me and deliver me from the many waters,
from the hand of aliens,
whose mouths speak lies,
and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
I will sing a new song to Thee, O God;
upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to Thee,
Who givest victory to kings,
Who rescuest David Thy servant.
Rescue me from the cruel sword,
and deliver me from the hand of aliens,
whose mouths speak lies,
and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
May our sons in their youth
be like plants full grown,
our daughters like corner pillars
cut for the structure of a palace;
may our garners be full,
providing all manner of store;
may our sheep bring forth thousands
and ten thousands in our fields;
may our cattle be heavy with young,
suffering no mischance or failure in bearing;
may there be no cry of distress in our streets!
Happy the people to whom such blessings fall!
Happy the people whose God is the LORD!


  1. Thanks for that Psalm, it provides such comfort since celebrating freedom while Obama is stealing ours one by one is so hard.
    God please save America from our poor choices. . .

  2. I wonder how many Anericans realize that President Obortion is throwing America to the wolves? Or even possibly, handing America over to a one world government.

    The billion dollar economic stimulus plan will sink America's currency and pave the way for a global currency.

    America is already so far in debt that foreign investors, including Canadians, are buying up all the recreational properties they can get their hands on at a fraction of their former price. Many people we know have bought condos in Florida and California for a mere $35,000. You can't even buy a vacant lot here for that price.

    Obama will go down in history as the president who changed America all right. Only not for the better.
