An Election Day Prayer

From The Curt Jester.
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

– St. Teresa of Avila
Reading Yours is the Church by Mike Aquilina last week, I was struck by a comment he made about not letting things like current events get you down. The Church has been here for 2,000 years. Before us, God guided the Hebrews for ... what ... 2,000 years before that. We do the best we can with what we've got in front of us and trust in God's providence.

So I'll go to vote at lunch and trust that we will all do our best ... in charity ... in love ... in wanting the best for each other, even if we disagree on how best to do it.

(I'm just glad I don't have to vote on some of the issues that Rose was reading to us from the L.A. County voters ballot info. Ugh.)

May God bless us and our country.

Now get out there and vote!
