Holy Family Home celebrated America’s 246th Birthday with a barbeque and, of course, with a great Liturgy. We are so blessed to have our Chaplain, Father James Sullivan. He never takes holidays off! As Pope Francis repeats during this month dedicated to the Elderly: “Let the younger generations learn from their grandparents! The mission of gratitude of elderly people is to help us remember the gifts received from God’s tenderness over their long lifetimes and to show us all the joy of giving thanks!”
The Residents of Holy Family Home were on their Mission of Gratitude as they prayed along with Father Sullivan the special Preface for Independence Day:
It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord.
He spoke to us a message of peace and taught us to live as brothers and sisters. His message took form in the vision of our founding fathers as they fashioned a nation where we might live as one.
This message lives on in our midst as our task for today and a promise for tomorrow.
And so, with hearts full of love, we join the angels today and every day of our lives, to sing your glory as we acclaim: Holy, holy, holy…
