Project Vigil: D-Day 2014: A Pilgrimage

Soon, Karen and I will be making a pilgrimage to France where we will see many of the great sites where the Blessed Mother came to be with us (I will share those experiences in the future).

As part of that trip, we will also make a pilgrimage to a place where many Americans made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives for their country, their God on Utah and Omaha Beaches.  I have been there once before and it is will be good to share that experience with my family and friends.

I was sent this video by a friend in anticipation of this visit.

I pray more young men understand the sacrifice these young men made for our country the way this young man does.

Two Years Since Benedict's Departure

Its hard to believe that it has been two years since Pope Benedict XVI resigned as Pope.  The first time since before we Europeans came to the Americas.

I remember sitting in my office at work, watching as he left the Vatican.  It was a bitter sweet moment because I admire him so much; knowing that he was doing, as always, what he thought was best for the Church. He is an example for all of us.

His departure is worth another look.

God Bless Pope Emeritus Benedict.
