Fourth of July
This is a holiday that is always welcome in summer. People get together and have picnics and parades, and then there are marvelous displays of fireworks. I love to watch the fireworks in South Miami from my house. Both of my community will be away, but a dear friend is coming to spend a few days and one of ours is staying here and going back to Haiti later so we will celebrate together.
Happy Fourth to all of you and remember that this holiday celebrates our freedom and the gift of a way of life that has kept us united with the exception of the civil war.
We need to pray for all those in government today.
It is also the feast of St. Elizabeth of Portugal, Isabella, and would be a good one to pray to for peace!
