The Cleveland Catholic Forum recently had an event entitled “The God of Washington: Religion, Liberty & The Founder of Our Country.”   The keynote of the event was theologian, author of 26 books, and former U.S. Ambassador, Michael Novak.  He talked about his latest book, Washington’s God, Liberty, Religion & The Founder of our Country. The Cleveland Catholic Forum hosted this event for two basic reasons: First, we love God, and second, we love our country Looking back, I remember when I was a young boy, my Mom and Dad would point to the American Flag and I would look up to it with awe as they told me that the flag symbolized the sacrifices of generations that created and built a nation. Today, that nation offers more freedom, hope and love for God and neighbor than any nation before in history. I see in daily life, talking with family, friends, coworkers, and volunteer organizations, and in the heart and soul of America, that Love for God and neighbor is still ...

Why go to Church?
2007-08-28 14:26:00
People often tell me that they don’t like going to church because they don’t get anything out of it.  I can understand where they are coming from because I used to feel the same way.  I always went, but often left feeling no different than before I came into church.  However, it became different when I changed my perspective and went to church for the greater good. The simple fact is that going to church is not just about getting something out of it for you.  You go to church to serve God and serve others. God is your Creator. He loves you and He will do anything for you that is good for your soul.  To put it simply:  He’s a great guy - and He would like you to be there with Him. Also, everyone at church is depending on you.  The Church is a community that is dependent upon its members for success.  If no one goes to Church, there is no Church.  If no one prays, there are no prayers being said.  If no one volunteers in the Church, no work gets done and no difference ...
