Our Lady and Sheen

On virtue and scary police groups

As I was driving into Germany this afternoon, I came to a spot in the road where the speed limit dropped to 110 km/h, from 130… then 90… then 70… then 50… then 30…then 10.  When it hit 50, you could see a police car up ahead with its lights on.  At 30, you could see a group of uniformed men.  At 10 (which is the equivalent of the car barely moving forward) 6 German police in a group stare at you as you’re driving through the border.

There is something to be said about the organization of units in columns and rows, dressed in uniform.  It is very impressive and stands out, however, when these same men are confidently standing in a group in a seemingly disorganized way, it gets unnerving.

In the same way, if we practice our virtues daily, and build them into a fine police force, then the need for defense is lessened.  In my opinion.  I listed to about 30 episodes of “Life is Still Worth Living” by Fr. Ryan Humphries while I was on the road.  And in seven or eight episodes he reinforced the need to strengthen ourselves spiritually.  So I would encourage you readers, as I pray for you, and you pray for me, to pray for an increase in virtues!

Our Lady, Pray for us!

Archbishop Sheen, Pray for us!
