HI!great blog! Fr Corapi is asking for a novena to Our Lady of the Rosary in this very important time:http://www.fathercorapi.com/PDF/ElectionNovena.pdfjust helping spread the word out! Tnx & God bless! :)
c.k.--Thanks for sharing that request of Father Corapi...the link I believe mentions the Battle of Lepanto when overwhelmed European mostly Catholic defeated a far superior Turkish naval force...as prayers were being fervently said. I believe that the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary commemorates that crucial victory in the life of Europe and, by extension, America.
The two bishops of NC issued a similar statement to be read at all masses. http://www.charlottediocese.org/customers/101092709242178/filemanager/PressReleases/Joint_Statement_on_Voter_Preparation_09.15.08.pdf
OOpps, I'm sorry. I should have read that link first. A letter was read at mass this morning from the bishops, but it was not that one. It was about protecting life before all other concerns. I can't seem to find a copy of this letter online. If I do, I'll post the link. Again, sorry.
OK, I finally found it. Here is the CatholicVoiceNC.org blog where they posted it. You can click the link to read the PDF in English or spanish. catholicvoicenc.org/bishopselectionltrEnglish10-08.pdf
