God Bless President-Elect Barack Obama

You've prayed, you've fasted, you've voted for the pro-life candidate - and Barack still won. Well then, God bless President-Elect Barack Obama and his family, and let's pray harder than ever and put even more effort into advancing socially conservative causes.

It is a historically significant event - the election of America's first black President - and I think the symbolic nature of it will bring many a measure of healing for a time. It saddens me very much, though, that America's first black President is a supporter of abortion...

Nevertheless, prayer is powerful and our prayers are never in vain. Let us pray for the Truth to prevail in the hearts and minds of all God's children, especially those who have the power to implement laws which could protect the most weak and vulnerable in our society.

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts." Mother Teresa
