In today's Gospel reading, Luke 18:1-8,
Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to keep praying
without becoming fatigued.
I think that we who worship God
should be praying constantly
for our President and Congress
to accept that the Affordable Care Act
disenfranchises those who believe in
the right to worship
as our Constitution's first amendment states.
Here is a prayer
given to us by the
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
I am asking for all of our faith
to pray it daily until our government
recognizes why we object to this mandate
and makes the appropriate changes so that Catholic hospitals
and others who do not accept abortion as a moral act
will be excluded from performing abortions.
Or pray using your own words,
but please pray always.
