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.
Parents—the first and most important educators—have a fundamental right to choose the education best suited to the needs of their children. Government policy should help provide options for parents, especially those of modest means, to exercise this right.
All persons have the right to receive a quality education. Young people, including those who are poor and those with disabilities, need the opportunity to develop intellectually, morally, spiritually, and physically, allowing them to become responsible citizens.
Read paragraphs 46 and 82-83 of Faithful Citizenship for more.
God the Father, you ask all parents to lead their children on the path of wisdom. Help us to discern and elect candidates who will support parents in this important vocation. Amen.
