May our new president be given all that is needed to carry out his many responsibilities. May the country support him in his efforts to inspire and lead us to peace and security. May God work powerfully in his life that he may experience new conversion of heart and work vigorously to protect the unborn from the dangers of abortion.
May President Obama have every success in reversing the trend in recent years of retribution, punishment, war and hard heartedness in our country and in the world.
“Where there is mercy and discernment, there is neither excess nor hardness of heart.” — St. Francis of Assissi
I think our country needs a stout dose of mercy toward others and wise discernment in our decisions. We are learning directly the consequences of excess. May our hearts be of flesh, and sensitized to the cries of the poor, marginalized, the condemned and the unborn in danger of death. Let us pray President Obama leads us in these ways.
