Our church and our country urgently need our prayers. On January 6th, the Feast Day of the Epiphany of Our Lord, a joint session of the United States Senate and House of Representatives will meet in Washington, D.C. to decide the fate of our nation by determining who the Electors will be to decide the identity of the next President of the United States. Whatever merits or demerits one might see in the characters of the candidates, there can be no doubt about the merits and demerits of the causes they represent. One man calls upon America to repent of the deaths of forty transgender people (most often victims of their own perverted “lifestyle,” while the other (the non –Catholic) calls America to honor the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas á Becket, who was assassinated by a tyrannical king for defending the rights of the Faith and the faithful. On the first Sundays of November and December, about 200 valiant souls met on the steps of the Hamilton County Courthouse in downtown Cincinnati to pray the fifteen decades of the Rosary in an appeal, not to the court of man, but rather to the Court of Heaven. This coming first Sunday of the new year, January 3, we will meet again to appeal to God for the purification and protection of our nation. Please do not be MIA, POW or DOA when your country so desperately needs you. Please join your hearts and voices in the Rosary for our land and its people at 2:00 pm this Sunday, January 3, at the Hamilton County Courthouse. We pray with confidence and humble adoration of God’s Will. God will not fail us. If the outcome is not what we hope for, let it not be because we failed Him.
