The homily was amazing, so I emailed my priest for a copy. I am so proud of my priests for taking a stand. Now we all need to back them up!

Dear Laura,

I am pleased to read that you are wrestling with the issues and striving to have a well formed conscience.

READ #31-#39 of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship. – and suggest that those on your website do the same.

All my homilies between now and the election, with the exception of this coming weekend, can be found at CACATHOLIC / TAKE ACTION/FAITHFUL CITIZENSHIP/ HOMILY GUIDES.

En Cristo,
Fr. Robert

I can understand that Mr. Obama's election to the Presidency was in large part the result of lies,

but which of the lies were actually intended to help his opponent ?

We have to get Romney/Ryan elected. There are and have been many threads discussing Romney vs. Obama. What I would like to hear though are concrete suggestions/thoughts/etc. on what we as individuals can do?

I personally started the Thursday night prayer thread for Romney/Ryan victory. I sent in an online form to RNC to volunteer (but haven't heard back which doesn't surprise me since Chicago is pretty much a lost cause for Romney). I have also volunteered to act as a Republican election judge in Chicago. I don't know anyone here "on the bench" so to speak, but if I did I would try to persuade them.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO? (Let's think outside the box here - do some creative brainstorming) Any thoughts?

One thing happening, not in our favor, is this latest Quantitative Easing by the Federal Reserve. This should perk
up the stock market in time for the election, even though it has a lot of downside for our economy.

So, Marianne, can you think of one concrete thing we could do (as individuals) to counter that?

Laura, it sounds like you have a great parish! And, perhaps those of us who have an amenable priest could suggest this!

This election is deeply rooted in a spiritual battle.

I think everyone should immediately have a Mass said for Romney's & Ryan's Victory/Protection. theheart

An individual Mass offering with the Seraphic Mass Association is only $5. They can schedule it for the very next day!

Capuchin's all over the world are united on a list and communicate daily to schedule Masses.

www.seraphicmass.org

(Or have a Mass said elsewhere if it can be said immediately. Retired priests might be able to offer a Mass w/o delay.)

I don't think that is accurate at all. After all, he is going against a lightweight as far as skill, experience
and morality are concerned. On the other hand, Obama has mucho experience in deception and
surrounding himself with deviants as you probably know.
