Keep your eyes fixed on the sky..Celebrate the stars, or planets!
Doublecheck because what you think are two bright stars in the western sky after sunset most likely are Venus and Jupiter! They are in plain sight and next to each other.
This week with July 4th coming up, if you pray the rosary, consider praying for a state by name at each "Hail Mary" . I like the order of states by the date of their official statehood. By praying the rosary, millions wage not war but the cry of peace. Individuals, families, priests, religious and holy people of all denominations, the educated and not, the wealthy and all of us can pray these prayers. God loves us all and Mary protects us as we win the battle over sin with each prayer uttered with right intention.
Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.
