Seventh Day within the Octave of the Nativity of the Lord
(I John 2:18-21; John 1:1-18)
It is a good day to take stock. We want to ask ourselves, “What were the most significant events of 2015?” And, “How did I fare this past year? Am I a better person now than a year ago?”
The year 2015 may be especially remembered for a Supreme Court edict. Nine judges by a five-to-four vote required every jurisdiction in the country to grant marriage licenses to homosexual couples. In doing so, the non-elected body not only obliterated the duly-established laws of most of the states but defied what has been recognized as natural law from time immemorial.
