Tuesday Benediction

Tuesday of the 5th Week of Ordinary Time

Reparation Week Benediction

2 Chron 7:14

Deacon Larry Brockman

It has begun.  The process for selecting our national leader has begun.  This very night, the first primary is being held.   

If ever our country needed prayers and reparation, it is now.  Because our choices are limited and should cause all of us grave concern.   

Of the 20 or so candidates who are seeking one party’s nomination, all 20 of them, every last one of them, is strongly pro – choice.  Not a single one of them believes in life from conception.  How can so many of them take such a position in what was a Christian Country?  It’s a position that Catholics just can’t accept.   

The choice on other side is marred by self-serving rhetoric, immoral behavior patterns, and risky international moves.  Ironic, that this side would be strongly pro-life.   

So, what can we do?  We have to turn it over to God.  Because only God has the answer; and God can work miracles despite the mess we are in.  Together, we can offer our prayers to God with all humility, and with the greatest of sincerity.   

And that is why we have Tuesday Benediction.  Because when we turn to our God; he is our hope.  Our country can survive anything as long as we focus on God and keeping his law.
