Today, on this momentous day in our country’s congressional history, I am reminded of Mary, Holy Mother of Jesus, Son of God whose time and place was a fulfillment of prophecy. She received God’s call and accepted her assignment to give birth to the Divine. She was fearless, compassionate, patient, enduring, introspective and confident. Her works continue to inspire and unite people throughout the world.
Today, as each congresswoman takes her rightful place in leading our nation I pray she will recognize the voice of the Divine and use divine wisdom in her decisions. I pray she is steadfast and enduring, united and uniting in the causes that will strengthen our nation. I pray God’s Grace in her life, healthy stamina and restful sleep. May God’s Light shine on and in her. May God bless her to be a beacon of hope, peace, love and a path for freedom, justice and equality for all. Many will park and pray at 1:11 pm for her and for all who serve our nation. In Our Savior’s Name. Amen.
