A Time to Pray

Forgive me if this post falls below others of levity or less importance. If it does, it is because I have yet to figure out how to prioritize posts in the system offered to me by Google. If you are not a Roman Catholic, most of the following still applies so I would appreciate it if you would give it a go (as my in-laws are fond of saying!).

It is a time for prayer (as it always is, but all of us often lose site of that) because:

1) Elizabeth Edwards has breast cancer. It was detected late last week and appears to be in the early stages. She and her family need your support NOW! Please throw politics aside on this issue. It is the Christian thing to do

2) Yassar Arafat appears to be brain dead. No matter what your opinion is of him (and mine is that he has lived his life as an evil thug), you should (and I will) pray for the man and the repose of his soul. It is the Christian thing to do.

3) Please pray fo the people of Israel and the Palestinian territories, and, for that matter, all those in the Middle East in general, and those specifically who will be impacted by the death of Arafat. It is the Christian thing to do.

4) Pray for all of those who are willing to stand up to the threat of evil. Keep in mind the current crisis in the Netherlands and all others who stand up to evil.

5) Pray for world peace. Pray that men will behave morally on the communal level so that evil does not spread (yes, I am a modern day and realistic Thomist).

6) For Roman Catholics, this should be first on your list every day: Pray the Rosary.

Thank you for reading... and praying!

Vivat Jesus!
