 A Prayer for Vocations

by Pope Francis

LORD OF THE HARVEST,

BLESS young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call.  Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things.

INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love and giving - for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.

INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you.

UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace.   AMEN

    "WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS: LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS".

    Among our most valued books are The Bible, The Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States.  The first is a life-line for a multitude of people; the second and third reinforce the basic principles of the Abrahamic Religions: The Hebrew Scriptures, The Gospels of Jesus, and the Koran, namely, that "Every Human Being is endowed with the dignity of the Image of God and is worthy of respect." 

    To salute the flag of the United States and pledge allegiance; to sing hymns and pray to God in worship with one breath, and with the next support discrimination, foster acts of violence, deny basic rights to any man, woman or child, is the height of hypocrisy, whatever one's station or position may be in this, "Our One Nation Under God, which proclaims Liberty and Justice for All."

    The final line in the statement above stands without meaning for as long as injustice is committed against any man, woman or child.  The proclamation of 'Liberty and Justice for All' remains no more than an EMPTY PLEDGE, diminishing the Constitution of the United States in its entirety. One missing link in the chain renders that chain useless.

    The assassination of Mr. George Floyd, caused by those who swore an oath to protect and defend the law of the land; a law that stands in defense of the presumption of innocence for all people; a law that demands evidential proof of guilt.  Mr. Floyd was presumed guilty without a slip of evidence and executed for being black.  The epitome of racist hatred, a mockery of the DeClaration of Independence and our Constitution.

    One Nation Under WHO???
