As we draw nearer to the election I have noticed that tensions are running high on both sides of the political aisle.
It is important that we remember that no matter who wins, our loyalty is not to the princes of this world but to our God in Heaven.
America is the greatest country that the world has ever seen. But we cannot be so without the grace of God. We are ever in need of His providence.
The Knights of Columbus have published a novena to Mary of the Immaculate Conception, the Patroness of our country. With Americans going to the polls and deciding our nation's course and destiny for the next four years, it is more important than ever to put that choice into the hands of our Lord and our Lady.
I will be praying this novena every day from now through election day, but the Knights particularly ask that it be prayed from October 30-November 7. And I invite all of you to pray with me.
God Bless America!
Prayer to Mary, the Immaculate Conception, Patroness of the United States
