I just read an article online that there are a group of priests and people that gather on the steps of the Capitol Bldg. in Wisconsin on Thursday evenings to pray for Romney and Ryan and their families. And, of course, this is being attacked by atheists.
I am so very concerned about what will happen to our country if Romney and Ryan don't win the election, and truly I don't know anything better to do than to start praying for them. And so, I thought that perhaps as a Catholic Match community we could individually pray for Romney and Ryan and the success of their campaign and their election victory, but all do this on Thursday nights at the same time if possible (for wherever 2 or more are gathered in my name ...).
So, if anyone would like to join me, I plan to pray on Thursday nights for this intention at 9PM Central Time (for roughly 20 minutes). That would be 10PM Eastern Time, 9PM Central Time, 8PM Mountain Time and 7PM Pacific Time (if you can fit it into your schedule). This would be for the next 8 weeks until the election.
We could post some prayers on this thread during the week - perhaps to St. Thomas More, St. Jude, Our Lady of the Nation, the Holy Spirit, etc.
As a group of committed Catholics we know the power of prayer. Let us ask Jesus to look kindly on Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and the Holy Spirit to guide them in their election campaign and debates.
We trust in Your Mercy, Jesus.
I will be praying with you, Patricia.
