'Living the Goodness of a Catholic Man'
Ideas and Inspiration from the desk of Frank J Casella
I was drawn to this moment of an American Flags in front of neighborhood housed in Midwest America, because it reminds me of how the Flag is a symbol of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness", a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the "unalienable rights" which the Declaration says have been given to all human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect. Without it we have chaos. Copyright 2012 Frank J Casella. Purchase here and support my work with CMCS.
Happy 4th of July! May God continue to bless this great country! Make some time to remind yourself about what Independence means (to you).

Just a thought ... 
When we notice a blessing from God, we might see more blessings if we look for them. Not because God is blessing us more, but because we are noticing His blessings more. God has not changed, we have. Likewise, the more we bless others from what we have, the more we will notice how others bless us. This is the love of Jesus at work in the world, touching our hearts.
Have a great month!
