Voting For Values And Freedom

The link for this video came from one of our Archdiocesan Commission members. It is a powerful ad reminding us of the issues, that as voting Catholics, are non-negotiable.
Please watch and share with others.



For Zion's sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem's sake I will not be quiet,
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
and her salvation as a burning torch.
~Isaiah 62:1

Karin, what a beautiful and powerful video! Thank you so much. It's scary too though... to think it has come to this.

I pray that enough Catholics will wake up and heed the call to change the tide..

I will definitely pass this on.

Thank you,
Patricia

I agree, Patricia. These are scary times we are living in. May we all have the grace to speak out and persevere.

Karinann, Oh I had goosebumps watching this and like Patricia, can't believe it's come to this.
I'm very thankful to have met some women though blogging who are so bold for the faith..
I definitively am praying for the grace to persevere.
Blessings and +

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
