A Short Thought about the Election

Delivered at beginning of mass on 11/6.

So many people, this year more than ever, have asked me to say something at mass about the Presidential election.  To those people I have universally said, “I thought you were my friend.”  But I do sense the growing tension in our church and in our nation, so let me give you the only piece of advice I have – Pray.  Study the issues and the people, pray like you would or should over any important decision and then vote and you will have done all that you can do and need to do.  And I will make you this promise, the day after the election will just be Wednesday.
