The calendar brings three “hot-button” issues before us this week.

 Monday: What do we think of our missionary work among the native peoples? (St. Junipero Serra)

Thursday: What do we mean by “All men are created equal?” (Independence Day}

 Saturday: Is purity still possible in today’s world? (St. Maria Gorretti)

Our calendar is not just a bland recital of nice things that should comfort us. Celebrations bring questions.
