Independence Day is a time to recall not only the tremendous blessings we enjoy as a nation but also that those blessings come from God Himself.
The very first day Jesus proclaimed, “This bread is My flesh which I will give for the life of the world” (Jn 6:51), many disciples went away grumbling, “this is a hard saying. Who can accept it?”

The Holy Spirit descended, that first Pentecost, “like the blowing of a violent wind” (Acts 2:2) upon Mary and the Apostles...
Jesus allowed Himself to be betrayed, scourged, mocked, crowned with thorns, crucified, and pierced with a spear. He held nothing back, but surrendered all for us, even life itself.
Come celebrate with us as we follow in St. Dominic's footsteps today, joyfully bearing Christ's light to the world.
