Keep praying. Does your parish have a holy hour or a prayer vigil or all night adoration tonight? I hope so. We're having a holy hour in my parish and my husband and I plan to be there. And we'll be on our knees at adoration tomorrow in front of our Blessed Savior at least part of the day while the polls are open. We plan to pray the 20-decade rosary begging Our Lady's intercession for the outcome of the election. My special intention will be for our children and grandchildren who have a lot longer to live in this post Christian nation than Larry and I do. And so I pray from psalm 10 with hope and confidence:
Why, O Lord, do you stand aloof?
Why hide in times of distress?
Proudly the wicked harass the afflicted,
who are caught in the devices the wicked have contrived.
For the wicked man glories in his greed,
and the covetous blasphemes, sets the Lord at nought.
The wicked man boasts, "He will not avenge it"' "There is no God," sums up his thoughts.
His ways are secure at all times;
your judgments are far from his mind;
all his foes he scorns.
He says in his heart, "I shall not be disturbed;
from age to age I shall be without misfortune."....
You do see [O, Lord], for you behold misery and sorrow,
taking them in your hands.
On you the unfortunate man depends;
of the fatherless you are the helper.
Break the strength of the wicked and of the evildoer;
punish their wickedness....
The desire of the afflicted you hear, O Lord;As St. Padre Pio often said, "Pray, hope, and don't worry." Psalm 11 follows the picture of the evil man and urges unshaken confidence in God ending with, "For the Lord is just, he loves just deeds; the upright shall see his face."
strengthening their hearts, you pay heed
To the defense of the fatherless and the oppressed,
that man, who is of earth, may terrify no more.
Obama is "of earth." Never fear the man of earth who can only kill the body, but fear God who can cast the soul into hell. And pray for those who put their souls in eternal jeopardy by their vote tomorrow, especially heretical Catholics like the members of Catholics for Obama, Catholics United, and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, as well as the Nuns on the Bus. Their scandalous actions will cry out against them on the day of judgment. May God have mercy on them.
