Too funny not to share. Maybe I’ll make some of these notes to put on peoples’ windshields too :-)

Warnings about Being Catholics in America

by Steve Ray on October 17, 2012

Brilliant a Quotes from Archbishop Chaput and Cardinal George:

“Catholics need to wake up from the illusion that the America we now live in – not the America of our nostalgia or imagination or best ideals, but the real America we live in here and now – is somehow friendly to our faith. What we’re watching emerge in this country is a new kind of paganism, an atheism with air-conditioning and digital TV. And it is neither tolerant nor morally neutral.” – Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.” – Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago

Janet and I are in North Dakota where I am conducting a parish mission in Beach, North Dakota. Great folks coming from all around the area and very enthusiastic about the Catholic faith.

While here Janet and I took advantage of some of the great landscape and hiking trails. Today we hiked back into the Badlands and the grasslands of North Dakota through the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

We saw bison – almost too close. We were intrigued with the Petrified Forest. It was the first time we’d seen such an amazing thing. Very interesting landscape which made made us feel like we were on another planet.

See the interactive map, videos and pictures HERE.
