All elections are Crucial.
This one, however, is quite defining of our Great Nation…
Do not take it lightly. I beg of you, do NOT take it lightly…
Sadly, I am not as articulate or as well read as I would like to be…no one’s fault but my own, I know…Must fight lethargy. I always have that same excuse, BUSY, or as Father Mario has explained:
Fortunately, Mr. Patrick B. Craine has pretty much Nailed It when it comes to putting the “Issues” for Christians to rest for this Presidential Election.
”If we cannot secure the most fundamental right to life, then there is no basis for the right to food or health care.”
This Election has truly put a strain on relationships.
Reminds me of Matthew 10:34 – 38:
‘Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword. For I have come to set son against father, daughter against mother, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law; a person’s enemies will be the members of his own household. ‘No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me. No one who prefers son or daughter to me is worthy of me.
Anyone who does not take his cross and follow in my footsteps is not worthy of me.
You see, all I keep hearing from Family and Friends is that Obama’s Healthcare Plan is a Life Saver.
That Obamacare helps so many single Moms and their families.
That Obamacare is designed to help those who cannot help themselves…
This election truly has falsely created a “Pro-life vs. social justice” argument when the reality is that these are One and the Same!!
Please read Mr. Craine’s article here.
The division facing the Church heading into the election is not “pro-life” vs. “social justice”, or unborn rights vs. the dignity of the poor. In the end, it comes down to a much deeper division cutting right through the heart of the identity as Catholics in the modern world and pointing to the grave need for this Year of Faith: It’s a division between those Catholics who embrace the Magisterium and those who do not, between those who would have the world conform to Christ and those who would have Christ conform to the world, between those who would cling to the Cross amidst the blistering storm of the age and those who prefer to go along for the ride.
