Praying for Our President and Country

For Wisdom During U.S. Presidential Elections

God of Justice,
Protector and Redeemer,
Grant guidance to our nation
As we select leaders,
Senators, Congresspersons and a President,
The men and women who promise
To uphold the Constitution,
To uphold our values,
To serve and to govern,
To bring prosperity to our land,
To protect our homes and secure our future.

Grant wisdom and courage to voters
To select a visionary President
And steadfast leaders,
People who will serve our citizens,
And all who reside within our borders,
With honor and integrity
To forge a flourishing and peaceful future.

Bless our future President with
Wisdom and strength,
Fortitude and insight,
Balanced by a deep humanity
And a love of peace,
Leading us to a time
When liberty and equality will
Reign supreme throughout the land.

God of Truth,
Source and Shelter,
Grant safety and security to all nations,
So that truth and harmony will resound
From the four corners of the earth.
Let the light of our U.S. democracy
Shine brightly,
A beacon of hope
For every land and every people.

God Bless, Pope Benedict XVI

In your charity, please pray for today’s intention, Rev. Fr. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Jesus, Savior of the world, sanctify Thy priests and sacred ministers.

V. Remember, O Lord, Thy congregation.
R. Which Thou hast possessed from the beginning.

Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus, born to give testimony to the Truth, Thou who lovest unto the end those whom Thou hast chosen, kindly hear our prayers for our pastors.
Thou who knowest all things, knowest that they love Thee and can do all things in Thee who strengthens them.

Sanctify them in Truth. Pour into them, we beseech Thee, the Spirit whom Thou didst give to Thy apostles, who would make them, in all things, like unto Thee.
Receive the homage of love which they offer up to Thee, who hast graciously received the threefold confession of Peter.

And so that a pure oblation may everywhere be offered without ceasing unto the Most Holy Trinity, graciously enrich their number and keep them in Thy love, who art one with the Father and the Holy Ghost, to whom be glory and honor forever.
Amen.

Our World . . .

“The world is still mobilizing, still ignoring the human, still counting bodies instead of souls, still thinking of poverty instead of the poor and of the masses instead of man.” Fulton J. Sheen

Politics, People, and Prayers

“If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, and the people do not become religious, I do not know what is to become of us as a nation. and the thought is one to cause solemn reflection on the part of every patriot and Christian. If truth be not diffused, error will be; if the evangelical volume (scripture) does not reach every hamlet, the pages of corrupt and licentious literature will; if the power of the gospel is not felt through the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness, will reign without mitigation or end.
Daniel Webster 1782-1852

Is October 13th Important to You?

Passing on the information that America Needs Fatima is sponsoring the annual Rosary Rally for 2018. https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/Rally-News/rosary-rally-central-2.html The link has all the information.

I signed up to be a Rosary Captain, last year, and it was a wonderful experience. We were blessed in that even though our site faced two, major streets, we didn’t get any adverse response to praying our public Rosary in honor of the Blessed Mother. Every year, more and more people are signing up for this. Given the current state of the world, we may seemingly be a ‘drop in the bucket’ but we get to use a powerful weapon against the evils of the world. Last year was the 100th anniversary of the miracle at Fatima. This year, we get to participate in the first anniversary towards the next century!

Check out the site and you will find they have covered just about every question/need. A banner will be supplied as well as the prayers for the public Rosary. Encourage people to make their own banners and bring friends. Remember to take pictures and share them with America Needs Fatima.
