“We must learn to see the difference between the false freedoms sold to us by the culture and the True Freedom bought for us by Jesus Christ.” -Fr. Mitch Pacwa We are fighting the culture wars and true femininity is hard to detect anymore.

Call to Action –
“This week, can we be open to God’s prompting to tenderly speak the truth with someone who may not even realize they are living in bondage but can live in freedom?“
“Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence; and keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are abused, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.“ – 1 Peter 3:15-16
Saint Quote –
“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought” – St. Pope John Paul II
