Yesterday I came home from work my heart, like all good Christians (and non-Christians) filled with deep remorse at the news of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on marriage. Trying like everyone else to live life as usual in our house yet there was a sense of sorrow that permeated everyone’s mood.
Just before dinner, our daughter came home for a weekend visit and brought with her the Father’s Day gift that had not arrived in time for her to give it to me last week. Here is a picture of her gift to me. It happens to represent a gift that Holy Mother Church has given to ALL good men and women who understand and believe that true marriage is between a man and a woman, nothing else, and He has chosen Louis and Zelie Martin to be the modern day role models for that union.
I can’t help but think that in spite of yesterday’s ruling it is ironic that in this 20th anniversary of the ‘Year of the Family’ there is a clear message to be heeded by all, it is a message of victory; the gates of Hell shall not prevail! Let us call upon Blessed Louis and Zelie and all of the Saints to pray for us in this battle, and in the midst of our sadness let us rejoice in the knowledge that Holy Mother Church is offering Louis and Zelie to us to be our front line leaders in the Faith and in Traditional marriage.
