“From the Incarnation and birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the whole of history was transformed and humanity received the total answer to all its questions and aspirations. In the Child-God, Icon of the Father, all has been given to us. In him is revealed to us the totality of the mystery and the key to our own greatness and our sublime dignity as image of God.”

AMERICA! AMERICA! GOD MEND THINE EV’RY FLAW

Robert Anning Bell - Mary in the House of Elizabeth (Mary and Elizabeth sewing and mending during three month visit!)

America the Beautiful is one of my favorite patriotic songs because it gracefully weaves together noble religious sentiments with a humble pure patriotism. One of my favorite lines in the song is: “God mend thine ev’ry flaw. Confirm thy soul with self-control, Thy liberty in law.”

As the saying goes, “Nobody’s perfect”… same too with organizations, groups, families, communities, nations.  America has flaws. People of good will need  to try and ‘mend them’.

But one flaw surely stands out – as more than a mere “flaw”; abortion, virtually on demand (that is, no reason or rationale need be given), literally up to the ninth month.

The current law of the land foisted upon us by neglectful judges is an “unjust law”; more than a flaw! When we sing the prayer line “God mend thine ev’ry flaw”, we should remember our greatest flaw; an unjust law.

The hollow and meaningless slogan “freedom of choice” is a ‘supposed liberty’ which needs to be curtailed by a just law.

The soul of America is sorely weakened, in large part by the deadly wound of killing its own unborn children. Its soul will be strengthened and confirmed, when a just law in the land protects the innocent unborn in the womb.

Sing and pray for unborn souls and just laws!

America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine.
