next national election is less than a month away. If ever we needed
to pray and vote for our leaders and propositions put on the ballot
for our consideration--this is the time.
consider praying the Novena below, beginning October 31.
Lord God, as the election approaches, we seek to better understand
the issues and concerns that confront our city/state/country,
and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens
in our community.
We ask for eyes that are free from blindness so that we might
see each other as brothers and sisters, one and equal in dignity,
especially those who are victims of abuse and violence, deceit
We ask for ears that will hear the cries of children unborn and
those abandoned; men and women oppressed because of race or creed,
religion or gender.
We ask for minds and hearts that are open to hearing the voice
of leaders who will bring us closer to your Kingdom.
pray for discernment so that we may choose leaders
who hear your Word,
live your love,
and keep in the ways of your truth
as they follow in the steps of Jesus and his Apostles
and guide us to your Kingdom of justice and peace.
ask this in the name of your Son Jesus Christ and through the power
of the Holy Spirit.

Catholic Church and Rights of Conscience
of the United States called for a renewed effort to change the HHS imposed
mandate that violates conscience rights & religious liberty. The
Administration's accommodation still forces objecting organizations
and individuals to pay for services that violate their religious
unjust rule has not been changed, but rather finalized.
promised some kind of accommodation, but only after
accommodation even at its best would still
force our institutions to violate their beliefs.
no exemption for objecting insurers, secular employers, for-profit
religious employers, or individuals.

from the Diocese of Sacramento, the USCCB, homilies, and videos to aid
