Thank you.

I want to take a moment to thank all the people who have taken the time to visit this site and read the articles. Thank you also to my friends who care about their fellow Catholics, and helped me spread the word. I was hesitant to go public with my views, but with so much at stake I decided it didn’t matter what anyone thought of me. I advertised my link and posted my views in places where a great number of people who I know personally and disagree with me intensely would see them. If I am seen as “clinging to my religion” or “smug”, then so be it. I know I am doing God’s work.

I would also like to thank the many people who purchased products from my shops. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of purchases in these economic times! I will be making a donation to Human Life International in the near future.

Visits to this site have been tapering off for the past few days, and I presumed that people had their information, and had made up their minds. I was therefore stunned when I checked my stats a few minutes ago, and discovered that the number of visitors today is triple the highest count from any previous day. I like to think that these visits represent some of those “undecideds”, or perhaps Catholics who are searching their conscience before making their choice.

I am still praying for the outcome of our election to be favorable to Catholics, but whatever happens I know that it is God’s will, and something good will somehow result. I can say personally that this election has helped me seek more information about my cause, to seek a deeper understanding of the Church’s teachings, and to better communicate my beliefs to the people around me.

Keep praying!

Praying for the Election

In General Information, Prayer on November 1, 2008 at 11:22 pm

I’m glad to know that my family, friends and I are not the only ones!

They’re fasting on the steps of the Florida Capitol, hoping God will hear their pleas to put an abortion opponent in the White House.

Prayer warriors will staff the get-out-the-vote command center Tuesday at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Md. A rabbi is distributing a prayer to be said in the voting booth…

…The faithful are busy as Nov. 4 nears.

Keep up the excellent work, and remember to thank God for our wonderful progress! Polls indicate that Catholics, who once supported Barack Obama by a wide margin, are now split 50/50. Clearly many have gotten the message. If nothing else, we will have saved a great many souls from grave danger on election day. This is surely a difficult time for faithful of many religions. We have been ridiculed and mocked for our beliefs, and it feels like our voices and our votes do not matter. But we have also sought more knowledge about what our religions teach us, we have solidified our moral beliefs, and we have learned to find our voice. We may feel as though we are on the brink, but much good has come out of this test already.
