Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced that today begins a nine-week novena that focuses on the 2016 elections.
“For nine weeks before Election Day” Father Pavone said, “Priests for Life calls upon believers to participate in an Election Novena. In this prayer campaign, we pray that we will choose wisely and that God’s people may not vote simply according to party loyalty or self interest, but rather, according to principle and the Word of God.”
The novena prayer can be found at www.ElectionPrayer.com. “The prayer is both nonpartisan and nondenominational.”
“When God judges nations,” Father Pavone said, “he does not necessarily send down fire and brimstone. Rather, he simply leaves us to endure the consequences of our own choices.”
