Celebrating June

I’m sure that you have noticed. Bereft of the Catholic Faith, the modern world has instituted its own rites, liturgies, celebrations and feasts to fill the void. If we Catholics took our own calendar seriously with all of its feasts and fasts, vigils and octaves, ember days and rogation days, First Fridays and Saturdays, etc., we would have no time for the secular “feasts” the world wants to impose.

The month of June is no different. We can celebrate June in one of two ways: that which is established by Christ’s Church, or that which has been established by … President Barack Obama.

O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
