40 days.

That’s all the time we have left to have an impact on the most important election of our lifetime. So much is at stake.

In times like this, we are reminded of the words of St. Ignatius: “Work as if everything depends on you; Pray as if everything depends on God.”

So we asked Cardinal Raymond Burke to write a prayer for the faithful witness of Catholics in America this election. And happily, he obliged.

    Without question, no Catholic can vote for Obama (or any other pro abortion candidate) without supporting intrinsic evil, thus placing their immortal soul in jeopardy.
    That said, however, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are not “Pro-Life.” They are the lesser of two evils, and we are taught we must choose the lesser of two intrinsic evils. Romney and then once he joined the ticket, Ryan, support abortion in the case of rape, incest or “health of the mother” (the last of which is one of the most convoluted and improperly used excuses for abortion ever invented. I watched Paul Ryan spit out his abortion exceptions last week; it was easy to tell he was wrestling with his formerly total pro-life position.
    I will vote for Romney, as the lesser of two evils. I do not anticipate vigorous attempts at anti-abortion legislation proposed by his White House or the appointment of solidly pro-life judges at any level. No doubt he is a good man, just misguided. In many ways I feel more sorry for Paul Ryan – he knows he sold out; you can see it.
    One thing I do believe with all my heart, however, is that if Oama is re-elected, tha is the end of our religious freedoms, and the “American Experiment.” I pray that more of our Bishops and Priests will stand up and proclaim the One True Faith in all its glory and majesty, no matterthe cost.

    Catholic or not, how can anyone condone the murder of tiny innocent babies? You can call yourself a Catholic but in reality you are a hypocrite in the truest sense of the word. Who would Jesue vote for?

    If any of you liberals can explain to me how it was in our national interest for the Bamster to cancel our anti – ballistic missile shield arrangement with Poland I would like to know what that would be. I mean, I ‘m just asking, since Iran is on the brink of going nuclear and any trajectory from Iran to the U.S. has to cross over Poland. We could have been protected from an Iranian missile strike but he gave our security away to please Vlad. And now the Polish President who gave us this gift is dead, killed in a mysterious plane crash while flying over Valdimir Putin’s country. But just wait until after the election – the Bamster will have more “flexibility” – at least that is whaat he told Vlad at the last meeting with Russia,

  • GOD be with us all.

    Obama did a horrible thing taking GOD out of our schools, courts, trying to eliminate “IN GOD WE TRUST” on our coins and giving our funds to foreign countries to support their pro choice abortions. While middle class families suffered the most, not to mention adding to the deficit and causing thousands of more souls out on the streets…surely he has not mentioned any of this, so let this be a reminder to all of us Christians.
