Our parish priest asked the congregation to pray the litany of St. Thomas More in the week leading up to the election (St. Thomas More is the patron saint of statesmen, politicians and lawyers). If ever we needed the intercession of the saints to spare us the victory of a demagogue like Obama, it's now.
This does not, of course, relieve us of the responsibility of doing whatever we can, as individuals, to fight for victory. Whether it's ringing doorbells, working the phones or - above all - making sure you get to the polls, let's get 'er done.
Update: All is not by any means lost.
