Fr. Robert Barron's Latest: Soraya M. And Freedom
I haven't seen the movie yet and while the subject matter is deeply disturbing, I would still like to see it. Comments welcome if anyone has seen it.
I've also added Father's commentary on Freedom for this July 4th. The two videos provide a stark contrast; the first should make us thank God for what is talked about in the second. Fr. Barron also raises some good points in his remarks on freedom about what true freedom~Biblical freedom~really means.
Go to Word on Fire for more of Fr. Barron's videos. Find the link under Catholic Links on my sidebar.
Have a Happy and Blessed 4th!
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
