Prayer of Thanks for our Nation’s Independence
God our father, your Son Jesus spoke to us a message of peace and taught us to live as brothers and sisters.
His message took form in the vision of our Founding Fathers, as they fashioned a nation where all people might live as one.
This message lives on in our midst as a task for us today and a promise for tomorrow.
We thank you, Father, for your blessings in the past and for all that, with your help, we must yet achieve.
Bless our nation and bless each of us. As we thank you for our independence, may we extend its blessings to our youngest brothers and sisters, the children in the womb.
Hasten the day when our nation will be a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all, through Christ our Lord. Amen

Statement- U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex Marriage
The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a ruling that redefines the civil definition of Marriage, as understood in the Catholic Faith, has always and still is the sacred lifelong commitment of one man and one woman. Marriage as the union of one man and one woman predates all nations, laws, and constitutions. Marriage is not only a relationship of love between the two persons who are committed to one another, but it is also about creating the next generation—this requires both a man and a woman.
The same Constitution that has now been held to open civil marriage to same-sex couples confirms and protects the Church’s right to carry forward the historic teaching of the Church regarding the Sacrament of Marriage.
As Catholics we believe in the dignity of each and every human being made in the image and likeness of God. As such, we accept all persons with respect, compassion, and sensitivity and must be mindful of that, even in polarizing times, there is no place for derision or smugness. I pray that all persons who hold dear the civil liberties afforded by the United States Constitution will join us in working to safeguard the rights of the people of faith to live and exercise that faith as they believe God requires. I ask all to pray for the sanctity of the Sacrament of Marriage and to join me in continuing to always pray for our country.
