Voting and a Well-Formed Catholic Conscience

+JMJ+ This is the most important election of my lifetime. This is the time for us to choose which way we shall go: to continue the great experiment that is the U.S.A. or to go down the path to socialism with all the horrors that entails. I don’t want that dark dystopian future for us and I hope you don’t either. I put together Vote 2020 (a voting resource page) and I’ll stick this post to the top of the blog for a few days. Vote your conscience but please form your conscience well first.

Happy and Blessed All Saints’ Day, Y’all!

+JMJ+ I hope you’re having a happy and blessed All Saints’ Day. I was getting my Divine Mercy tweet ready a few minutes ago (read: a few minutes late, okay, an hour) when I found this in St. Faustina’s Diary:

“On one occasion I heard these words in my soul, Make a novena for your country. This novena will consist of the recitation of the Litany of the Saints. Ask your confessor for permission [probably Father Sopocko or Father Andrasz].”

Kowalska, Saint Maria Faustina. Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska: Divine Mercy in My Soul, (section? paragraph?) 59. Marian Press. Kindle Edition.

That seems like a great idea to me. Pray the Litany of the Saints for our country. And the election! If only I’d thought about putting election stuff on the site sooner, and had found this sooner. But I didn’t find it in the book by searching for anything related to elections. I was looking for something to do with saints to post for All Saints’ Day.

Which brings me back to the reason I began this post to begin with: to send you a heartfelt greeting and to say I hope you’re having a happy and blessed All Saints’ Day, whoever and wherever you are.

Tomorrow is the first Monday of the month so I’ll be posting another part of the Re-Reading the New Age series sometime tomorrow, probably tomorrow night. Until then, may you stay safe and well, virtuous and holy. And may His peace be always with you. God bless you! +JMJ+
