Homily on Veterans Day

For John, BLUFWe need to keep those old thyme values.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

How often do you remember the Homily?  My youngest Brother sent this along today, which was the opening to the Associate Pastor's Veterans Day Homily:

For the first part he just quoted three lines from Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America:
  • “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.”
  • "When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in darkness."
  • “Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.”
A Commander in the US Navy Reserve, the Priest is just back from his tenth deployment.
