God Alive & Relevant in Hearts of the Greats!

God Alive & Relevant in Hearts of the Greats!

For centuries, the tentacled evil octapus seems focused on suffocating the life out of belief in God and all things Godly, declaring without evidence that God and especially the Catholic Church has become irrelevant. Many decades ago, poet W.B. Yeats inquired: "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

The truth is that the really good people, who encompass most of us on this planet, just happily go on believing.

I'll give you a stellar example of an experience I had just today (Friday, August 13, 2010) at The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Day in Saratoga Springs, New York, where the greatest trainers, jockeys and Thoroughbreds are honored each year.

2010 Hall of Fame Jockey Inductee Randy Romero said he was happy to get this honor on this side of the dirt and that the most important Person in his life is God.

Hall of Fame Jockey Pat Day said that every honor he has ever gotten has been through the grace of God.

2010 Hall of Fame Awards Keynote Speaker Gary Stevens said "God bless!" at the end of his keynote speech.

In my long lifetime, I have heard many greats over many centuries give the lion's share of credit to God. Never in my life did I ever hear any great give any credit to the Devil.

Why do you think that is? I would love to hear.
