Catholics Called to Witness

This 2012 election is it.  
The time is fast approaching. 
The HHS Mandate is no small matter.  
Religious Freedom is at risk.  
Where do we want our nation to go?  
Will God forsake us for our spiritual apathy?  
Our tolerance of immoral issues?

Pro Life Action League along with others are working hard to organize another Religious Freedom Rally all across our nation on June 8, 2012.  This time, they are trying to get our bishops to lead a procession in each city with the Blessed Sacrament.  I'm praying that the bishops will heed this call and join the priests, nuns and lay people in peaceful protests across our nation.

Last month, over 63,000 Americans gathered at rallies in 145 cities for a massive rally in protest of the HHS Mandate.  I went to the one in Chicago and it was reported to have over 2,500 people that showed up in the pouring rain!  God blessed us and stopped the downpour in time for the rally to start!  

Catholics and Christians need to vote with God's values in mind if we want to 
change the course of American History.  
We need to pray about it, ask for guidance from the Holy Spirit and act on it.  
Tell others about it.  
We can't keep it to ourselves and hope it'll just turn out alright.
We can't just ask Him yesterday for His Divine Mercy and then do nothing.  
God is calling us to action and vote!

Easter Blessings,


  1. This is a great call to action, Noreen. I pray that Catholics step up to the plate this year. Thanks for the post and the video - there is so much at stake in this election.

  2. I know! I'm praying that Catholics and Christians take heed of this important time and vote with God in mind. I once heard on EWTN, Mother Angelica speak about elections and "was it a sin if you voted for a candidate who you know is for abortion." She said very emphatically "yes! If you know a candidate is going to promote a moral evil, then you're complicit in this sin with them." I agree.

  3. The music in this video is so powerful. My prayers are going strong for our country and I, too, pray with you for this upcoming election. Thank you for this Noreen.

  4. I go this in an e-mail this morning and posted in my blog. As the video says: there are those issues that are not negotiable.
    Glad you posted it here.

  5. Amen! Thank you for promoting this. I join you in prayer!

  6. How timely! I was just introduced to "Adrienne", online; a woman who is very involved in leading this ministry in Florida! Nice to see that this is all making its way through cyberspace.
