Mercifully, another campaign season draws to a close today.  Walking to the voting poll early this morning, I could not help but think how this day fully demonstrates every US citizen is truly equal.  No matter the walk of life, each has the dignity and right to exercise their freedom to elect our governmental leaders.

As our nation’s citizens fulfill their civic duty today, a prayer from the Roman Missal:

O God, who arrange all things according to a wonderful design, graciously receive the prayers we pour out to you for our country, that, through the wisdom of its leaders and the integrity of its citizens, harmony and justice may be assured and lasting prosperity come with peace.  Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
