Daily Novena Prayer
Virgin Mary, patroness of America,
Please prepare our hearts as we take part in this year’s elections. Help us to humbly receive the wisdom of the Church, and to accept the importance of Her teachings in our lives and voting decisions. Guide us as we choose leaders who will best uphold the common good and the dignity of all.
In your Son’s name, Amen.
Economic decisions and institutions should be assessed according to whether they protect or undermine the dignity of the human person. Workers, owners, employers, and unions have a corresponding responsibility to work together to create decent jobs, build a more just economy, and advance the common good. Economic policy should promote the flourishing of all, not the interests of a few.

Heavenly Father, you created man to work, glorifying you in our everyday labors. Help us to elect officials who recognize the dignity of work, and are committed to just economic policies. Amen.
