November is the month dedicated to the suffering souls in Purgatory. We pray for them and offer our sacrifices for them. We also pray for our Church and the salvation of all souls. This is becoming ever more important because so many Catholics do not really know the faith and they are so easily mislead.
In this last election, a faux Catholic ran for the position of Vice-President. His claim of being a faithful Catholic was so clearly at odds with the truth. People wake up! Is he really a faithful Catholic?
Tim Kaine will not be our next Vice-President – thank God. In two years, he will be running for reelection. Do Virginians and the aborted babies need six more years of Tim Kaine? I say, NO!!!
Meanwhile we look to our parishes and our shepherds for true Catholic teaching and guides to aid us to form right conscience. In this past election cycle at St. Peter’s, all we heard was crickets. We hear about social justice – save our planet – but we do not hear about spiritual justice and social responsibility. This is not acceptable. The sheep of St. Peter’s deserve better.
Nevertheless, prayers were answered during this past election. Look at the stats. In 2016, Catholics finally started coming home and voting for the culture of life. May God be praised!
Some day, we will hear something more than crickets at St. Peter’s. For now, we continue to hear the “sound of silence”.
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming
And the sign said,
“The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.”
And whispered in the sound of silence
