Pray for Joe Biden, pray for Ted Kennedy

Thomas More is more important at this moment than at any moment since his death, even perhaps the great moment of his dying; but he is not quite so important as he will be in about a hundred years' time. - G.K. Chesterton, 1929

I think Obama is going to win the election. If he does, the pro-life cause has nothing good to expect from him. 

The Democrats do have two influential Catholics in their ranks. These two men, if their minds, hearts, and souls were opened to the truths of the faith they profess, could become powerful witnesses to the sanctity of human life.

Join me in praying for Joe Biden and Ted Kennedy - that they would receive and accept the grace to understand the proper relationship of civil to moral law, as did Saint Thomas More who witnessed to the truth of Christ's teachings through the Church even to the point of death. 
Let us pray:

O Glorious St. Thomas More, Patron of Statesmen, Politicians, Judges and Lawyers, your life of prayer and penance and your zeal for justice, integrity and firm principle in public and family life led you to the path of martyrdom and sainthood. Intercede for our Statesmen, Politicians, Judges and Lawyers -- and in particular, for Senators Joe Biden and Ted Kennedy -- that they may be courageous and effective in their defense and promotion of the sanctity of human life -- the foundation of all other human rights. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
R. Amen.

I too fear an Obama win - and more years of woe for the pro-life cause.

I think it's intersting Cardinal Burke says the Democratic Party is becoming the party of death. I was a member of that party for many years.
