Dominion Day

Happy Dominion Day! "He shall have dominion from sea to sea..."

Isn't that wonderful? A Mari Usque ad Mare.

The fathers of confederation named their business enterprise the Dominion of Canada, after the Lord Almighty in the psalm. I wonder—did they jinx us by dedicating this infant country to God and his justice? What does it mean for the future generations that proceeded to bugger it up? So literally?

Will and I are reading the Church and the Land by the distributist thinker, apologist, and popular saint, Fr. Vincent McNabb.

It is enough to restore your faith in everything that was right about our country in its foundation, and will be right again, one day.

But as my sister pointed out, it does make you want to run out and buy a farm. And raise thirteen children. So beware.
