Hattip to Instapundit.  This was the Easter in the year before my birth.  How quickly a culture can change.  Such a reflection can be a reason for pessimism or optimism depending on how we act today and in the days to come.  The future is ever constructed by those who take action in the present.

  1. This was what the U.S was like in my teenage years. I remember that most stores were closed on Sundays just like Chick-fil-a is today. Also, every Sunday Mass ended with our praying “for the conversion of Russia.” Boy, have times changed in my life time. Today, Natasha, my wife who was born and raised in Siberia, was telling me that Easter is the most important holiday in Russia. Why isn’t the U.S. Catholic Church praying for the conversion of the Democratic Party, and our country, today?

  2. That was then, when I was kid in the Bronx.
    This is now, when six animal rights gangsters disrupted Easter Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
    Stillbelieve: in my prayers before the Rosary, I pray for the conversion of sinners and America. Tragically, it will require a major miracle.
