Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Be Filled With Joy

We are Christians, first and foremost. We've each had a chance to vent (see my late night rant from yesterday). We are now getting an opportunity to absorb what happened yesterday. We should be strategic and look for chances to influence the good in society and deliver a great conservative candidate next election cycle.

That said, I'd like to echo some of the posts and comments below in a way. One of the things I have disliked about the Left in this country is their bitterness at losing. They tear one another and the winners apart. They are angry and bitter.

I prayed a Novena to St. Jude for God's Will in this election. We have it now, for purposes He may never fully reveal. Let us be clever and strategic, but most of all, let us be cheerful and truly joyful. Our hope is in Christ, our victory assured. Let us show something in the days to come that will shock those who are un-tethered to a lasting peace. Let us meet their celebratory attitude -no matter how poor it may be - with a smile, and a true reflection of our interior peace that only God can provide. Pray for our leaders and our country. Stand up and fight when we must. But show a joy that may convert more hearts than we know. Will you join me?
