Song for this here.
The first bit of news I saw today, and it is good.
Thanks be to God. I hope and pray that Trump doesn't reverse it again. Story here.
As I said on Facebook, I thank God for this grace - not Trump - he is only doing his duty. Just as he did in the case of reversing the contraception mandate in the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Today's Gospel seems to apply to this development, since the outcry against the reversal and trophy hunting was so great.
Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
He said, "There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.'" - Luke 18:1-8
Thank God alone. As Our Lord instructs us in this parable:
The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
who call out to him day and night?
Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?" - Luke 18
Prayer obtains all. Thanks be to God!
Put not your trust in princes or guns, God alone suffices.
