Will there be a light at the end of the tunnel? We're still waiting for that electoral light at the end of the tunnel as the candidates come up short on the presidential gridiron

Al GoreGeorge W. BushMemorial in Owensboro, Kentucky of 4000 small white crosses erected by St. Pius X parish to honor the number of unborns killed each day - photo from the Diocese of Owensboro web site As the election process slows to a painful crawl and litigation raises its ugly head, we dissect the Catholic vote by polling the diocesan web sites in trying to find out what went wrong with the Catholic vote in the heavily Catholic areas of America

       In our editorial this week, on the Feast of Saint Leo the Great, the holy Pontiff who stood up to Attila and his barbaric legions promoting the culture of death in the fifth century, we are faced with a modern Attila who is just a few votes from becoming the 43rd President of the United States and shudder with the thought of what might happen if we don't pray all the more during this week of waiting for the final tally of votes. We join the millions of frustrated Americans who are getting fed up with the dirty tricks in the aftermath of the closest election in the history of the United States. Everyone has to be fed up with all the polls that truly exposed the secular media as the false prophets they are. We took a poll of our own, surveying all the archdiocesan and diocesan sites on the web and what we discovered may shock you. We equate the situation - one that might not be resolved for another week or longer - to sudden death overtime in a hotly contested football game. It's kill or be killed all-out smash 'em mentality as the legal gurus take over to muddle this year's election process. The stakes are high. Either we begin to kill the culture of death through prayer by eking out a narrow win in the electoral vote for the pro-life candidate George W. Bush or be killed as in millions of more innocent unborns and quite possibly many expendible seniors down the road if the pro-abort candidate Al Gore somehow sneaks in. The strategy for loyal Catholics remains the same game plan from the beginning: Pray! Pray! Pray! For our commentary, Only prayer will offset the trick plays the culture of death will attempt in sudden death! see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

    Cathedral of St. Cecilia in Omaha where Archbishop Daniel E. Sheehan's funeral was held


    In the November 10th issue Sister Mary Lucy Astuto follows up her column last week by sharing the reverent and memorable funeral of Omaha's Archbishop Daniel E. Sheehan in the Cathedral of St. Cecilia where he spent so much time in prayer. It is also the Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great, Doctor of the Church who turned back the "Scourge of God."
    SATURDAY


    On November 11th, the Feast of Saint Martin of Tours, we present the Fourth Lesson on our special series on the Charism of Conjugal Love AT ONE WITH GOD as we treat the suffocating weed of addiction, a pest that can choke the life out of a marriage. No matter how small, any vice or fault can become a deadly menace if the lawn of love in marriage is not attended to daily by both husband and wife in union with Christ.
    SUNDAY

    In the November 12th issue we bring you the words of Pope John Paul II from his Wednesday General Papal Audience in which he reminds all the faithful of the importance of the inclusion of both vertical and horizontal type of "communion-koinonia" for it takes both the trunk and the arm to form a cross and that is the essence of the Holy Eucharist in becoming One with Christ and each other.
    MONDAY
         Mother Cabrini

    November 13th is the Feast of the Italian immigrant Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini who became an American, holding the torch of truth high for the teachings of the Church. Pat asks if that flame is being snuffed out by relativism as Catholics rationalize their consciences, evident from the election results.
    TUESDAY
    Mary's fiat was the foundation of the Sanctity of Life

    On November 14th, we bring you Cyndi Cain's article in her SYMPHONY OF SUFFERING series in which she empathizes with the suffering of so many loyal Catholics as we wait out the result of the election and she asks those who voted for a pro-abort candidate why they didn't say 'yes' to Our Lady.
    WEDNESDAY

    On November 15th, the Feast of Saint Albert the Great, we bring you Dr. Frank Joseph's column PRO-LIFE PRESCRIPTIONS in which he decries the state of confusion that has resulted from the election and those states that are heavily Catholic which incredibly voted against Church teaching. He deducts that sadly "voting your conscience" didn't register with many Catholics.
    THURSDAY

    On November 16th, the Feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland and the Feast of Saint Gertrude the Great, we bring you the 206th installment of our on-going series from My Catholic Faith called APPRECIATING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF OUR FAITH as we continue with the parent's duties on the Fourth Commandment, "Honor thy Father and thy Mother."
