The Freedom to do as we please?

1 comment

Fr. Barron has some mixed thoughts on the 4th of July.  What do you think?

I think he’s right on. Freedom must be about our ability to freely love. We shouldn’t want freedom just so we can do whatever we want.

Political freedom (just like free will) is valuable when we use it to more freely do God’s will.  On the other hand, political freedom is very destructive (just like free will) when we use it to more freely do as we please.

Let us celebrate our freedom to do God’s will and thank those who have sacrificed so much for us to have such freedom.  Happy 4th of July, everyone!

Oh I have so much to say about this one in regards to individualistic freedoms in various aspects in life that are twisted and not healthy to what true freedom is.

License vs. Freedom. What does it mean to be truly free?
