Pope John Paul II exhorts all to stay the course here on our earthly journey with our hearts held high, always focused toward our final objective of joining the Father in His Heavenly Mansion.
"In My Father's House there are many mansions. Were it not so, I should have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again, and I will take you to Myself; that where I am, there you also may be. And where I go you know, and the way you know."
(John 14: 2-4)
This past Wednesday, in lieu of his normal Wednesday Papal Audience, His Holiness John Paul II gave an Angelus Address in honor of the Solemnity of All Saints, a Holy Day of Obligation throughout the universal Church. The Pope celebrated Holy Mass before a packed faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square and then delivered his Angelus, focusing on the importance of All Saints Day and the succeeding All Souls Day and the Blessed Virgin Mary's integral role in bringing us all closer to sanctity by leading us to her Divine Son and cited the 50th Anniversary of the glorious proclamation by Pope Pius XII of the Dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. He emphasized the importance of each to strive to emulate the saints during our journey here on earth, keeping always in sight our Heavenly goal where we can be transformed into true saints because of our holy effort in this life.

Today is Day 8 of the Countdown Novena to the Election! Your prayers are vital! We recommend at least a decade a day and a Chaplet of Divine Mercy. If you can say a Rosary a day in hopes of a miracle that America can return to God through this election, that's even better! It's between you and God. Remember, nothing is impossible with Him!
