    From Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s plan to subvert the Catholic Church from within, Lord deliver us.

    From Hillary Clinton’s plan to import thousands and thousands of Muslim invaders, Lord deliver us

    From Hillary Clinton’s plan for legalized and taxpayer-paid euthanasia, Lord deliver us.

    From Hillary Clinton’s continued selling of government access to foreign powers who don’t like us, Lord deliver us

    From Hillary Clinton’s demonizing of poor people when speaking to her rich donors, and demonizing of rich people when speaking to the poor, Lord deliver us.

    From the effects of Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s participation in demonic rituals, Lord deliver us.

    From Hillary Clinton’s proposed $15-million amnesty tax per household, Lord deliver us.

    From Hillary Clinton’s plan to wage war with Russia, Lord deliver us.

    For the sake of unborn babies slated to be killed by Hillary’s patronage of the evil Planned Parenthood, Lord hear our prayer

    For the sake of our Supreme Court that needs to be filled with pro-life, conservative Justices who will defend our Constitution instead of rule from the bench, Lord hear our prayer.

    For the sake of those who’ve lost their jobs due to outsourcing to foreign countries, Lord hear our prayer.

    For the sake of Mr. Trump, a very flawed candidate, but has the more Catholic agenda than that of Mrs. Clinton’s evil policies, Lord hear our prayer.

    Father, may it be according to Your will that Mr. Trump wins. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

    Lord God of the universe, Father of Our King Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, have mercy on Your people of the United States of America. Open the eyes of American Catholics on the dangers of voting for Hillary Clinton on this most critical elections. Hear the prayer of Our Blessed Mother and our American saints who in life have worked for mercy and justice. With them, we pray for the healing of our land so that Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

    I often think about and pray for the thousands of people I have met over the last 40 years of so – hundreds of them in a Catholic context – and whatever happens in the elections tonight , today has been a horrible day for me, as I realize that, without a doubt, very many of the people whom I have prayed for all these years committed the indisputably mortal sin – if they are Catholic ( or committed the despicable act of deep ingratitude to the Lord our God, even if they are not Catholic) of voting for a sad old woman who has excitedly stated, in her pride of life, that she prefers that babies who are almost born be aborted – (she has no idea if it is in a painful manner or not – it is, but I hope to God that she does not know that) – if the mother whose vote she wants decides to do so. Sorry for the run-on sentence. I am not happy today with the Bishops of this country, so many of whom have not explained this basic truth, and I am not happy for – although I pray for – the man whom so many of us pray for, as we should, but who decided to spend today or yesterday giving a cold-heartedly honorable reception to one of the most enthusiastic abortionists who has ever lived in what should be the blessed country of Italy. God forgive us all. Perhaps the Venerable Pius XII, who was coldly and falsely slandered as not caring about the innocent, can pray for those of us who are living today, when so many really do not care about the innocent.

    I can get behind your prayer Akita. As I write this we now know we have a President Donald J. Trump! God writes straight with crooked lines. He took a most unlikely man, a flawed man but a man uniquely capable of withstanding an avalanche of odds against him. We believe in a very real sense, the Republic has been saved. We give all thanks, praise, and glory to Our Lord Jesus Christ, because this victory seems near miraculous. He had no help from any quarter, not even from quarters that should have supported his platform, and to their shame, did not. In the end, their voices were ignored and they made themselves irrelevant in the culture.
    It’s a whole new day.

  7. Kathleen10 says:

    And I also believe Donald Trump is a changed man from the man he was when he began. He cares deeply for our nation and our people. When at the third debate he defended the unborn despite the fact it would not help him, it changed everything.
