The last couple of days have provided some beautiful skies here in Wyoming. I appreciate the opportunity to take in the beauty of God's creation while walking and praying. The warmer days have been welcome and my exercise regimen has been a little easier to maintain in such conducive conditions. Since I pray while I am walking that means my prayer life has been on track too. I am grateful for these blessings. Today I pondered the gift of religious freedom as we continue in the Fortnight for Freedom.
Bishop Etienne's homily at Mass today was phenomenal. He shared some very personal insights in regard to developing an interior life that sets the stage for experiencing freedom in a profound way. He gave a reminder that is extremely pertinent to the faith journey. We say "yes" to self-sacrificing love each and every day. Serving one another through love is not simply a commitment we make once. We make it over and over again. This type of love sets us free. How free are you?
