2016: The Texas Catholic Olympics


In Jesus Through Mary to ya'll!

August 21, 2016 marked the end of the 2016 Rio Olympic games. While I am proud of the fact that they ended with the US still in charge, I am also proud that despite the atheist/secular attempts to showcase it as the debut of trans-gender athletes, that idea was quickly tossed in the garbage where it belongs. Instead, the focus shifted to the natural men and women who held their faith up high along with their medals.

Consider just this sample of Catholic stars that competed in Rio:

-Simone Biles
-Katie Ledecky
-Usain Bolt
-Lia Neal
-Anabell Smith
-KK Clark
-Mary Jo Fernandez
-Gaby Lopez
-Gabi Nance
-Erin Rafuse
-Denise Sheldon

I also like the fact how many athletes were from the Lone Star State; in fact, if one were to examine the winners, one will find Texas was responsible for about 1/3 of the total US medal count.

What exactly am I getting at with this?
When you give up God, you give up any notion of trying harder or bettering yourself. Is it any wonder as faith in God goes down, satisfaction with life goes down with it?
