Quote of the day: Countercultural witness of Christ's love

No one seems to bat an eyelash at the often sensationalized garter fetching and tossing that occurs at most weddings. I’ve seen my Franciscan University friends terrified by the insistence of DJs in torturing unsuspecting bouquet-catchers. Yet at a friend’s recent wedding, the cries of confusion and discomfort were uttered at a completely different practice — the groom’s washing of the bride’s feet.

...One bridesmaid astutely noted that it was wonderful to see that although the couple had only been married a matter of hours, they were already serving as a countercultural witness to the world of Christ’s love for the Church.

Happy 4th of July! I am heading out to the lake to spend the day relaxing (read eating!) with family. :) Have fun celebrating the independence day of our nation remembering true freedom comes from knowing, loving and serving God.

Stay safe, God Bless!
