USA's Transition of Power


In the month of January there is supposed to be a transition of power in the United States of America from one elected President to the next elected President.

I do not think such a transition should be taken for granted. 

I ask my readers to engage in daily prayer before and on the 20th of January for this transition in Presidents to take place without problem or diversion.

I suggest at least a novena of either the Holy Rosary for this occasion or the daily recitation of the Litany in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer (USA) or the Great Litany in The Book of Common Prayer 1979 (USA) [or as it appears in The Book of Divine Worship of the Pastoral Provision of St. John Paul II].  Those outside the United States would find the Litany in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England sufficient for this cause.

There are of course many other ways to undertake such serious daily prayer such as attendance at a novena of daily Masses, or a novena of hours before the Blessed Sacrament of the Lord Jesus Christ.  If you are from a different Christian tradition with its own method for such daily serious prayer such as daily prayer, Bible reading, and fasting, then please undertake it.

I believe the people of the United States are in need of our prayerful assistance to see this transition of power through to its proper and Constitutional conclusion.

Nevertheless, not what we will be done but that which the Holy Trinity wills.
