Those of us who were active in the failed 1992 attempt to repeal Maryland's SB162 by referendum will remember the prayer cards to the right. They were devised by the Maryland bishops, who ordered that this prayer be prayed at all Masses prior to the November 1992 elections. Well, after that disastrous election which not only kept SB162 in place but elected Bill Clinton to his first term, this prayer was immediately scuttled by the bishops. I was truly baffled, since I thought such prayers were needed then more than ever.
I and a number of other people have continued to pray this prayer privately after Mass over the intervening years. I present this prayer to you at the right, and invite you to download and share it with your fellow Catholics.
