Happy Fourth

I probably won’t be able to post on Purgatory until tomorrow morning. In the meantime here are a couple of interesting links:

The Declaration of Independence was the birth certificate of the United States of America. The principles it communicates have informed our history as a free people and inspired our neighbors in other parts of the world to stand up against all forms of tyranny. Catholics who are Americans know all too well the ravages of the “dictatorship of relativism” in our Nation. It is time to take up the task of the New Evangelization in this Nation which we love. It has become mission territory. We are the missionaries. May God Bless America.

Did you know that there was a Pope that abdicated? I had no idea.

Benedict XVI will return Sunday to the tomb of the only one of his predecessors to abdicate Peter’s Throne, his second visit to the spot in two years.

The Pope will visit the earthquake scourged Abruzzi region of Italy on July 4 and venerate the relics of Celestine V, the 13th-century Pope who abdicated the papacy after only five months.

    I am amazed at how much there is to learn. The article about Celeste V abdicating after 5 months was very informative for me. Thank you.
