Fasting and prayer for our nation April 26, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic.

Many Americans are very disconcerted about the direction our nation has taken of late.  It seems that our political leadership is governing in ways diametrically opposed to the will of the people, and the culture grows more and more hostile to people of faith.  We could just sit around and mope, hoping that someone will do something about it.  Or, we can do what Americans have always done, which is to refuse to acquiesce and to get engaged.  I, for one, will not go silently into that good night. 

I’m not alone.  On Saturday, May 1, at the Discalced Carmelite Chapel in Dallas, there will be a time of fasting and prayer from 5 am till noon.  Mass will be celebrated at 7 am.  The point of all this is to atone for the many sins ongoing in this nation and to cry out to God for mercy.  The Discalced Carmelite Chapel is at 600 Flowers St. in Dallas.  

Prayer and fasting are two of our greatest weapons in the war for souls, and the war for the culture.  I pray that many will consider trying to participate in this sacrificial offering.  Even if you cannot attend in person, perhaps you would consider setting aside a time of prayer on this Saturday.  May 1, “May Day,” has long been associated with secularist and socialist causes.  What a fine way to combat these forces hostile to the Church by offering up our prayers and ourselves in atonement for our sins and those of many others. 

Would you consider joining us in this sacrificial offering?
