In the past week, a legitimately ordained Bishop in China disappeared without a trace; a priest in Edinburgh, Scotland was found dead on a beach with no clue as to how he got there; a Mexican priest was stabbed in the Cathedral in Mexico City and is now upgraded to critical condition. Let’s not even talk about the terrorist desecration of the Holy Eucharist and a Catholic Church in the Philippines. For now, I am going to put aside the issue that very few in the US even know about any of these tragic events. Let’s just skip to the chase in light of all this, that we in the US are so very fortunate. Happy Birthday USA!
