“Catholics, hold the Crucifix in one hand & vote with the other! “

Years ago I was present at a Rosary Congress with several speakers who are Catholic Bloggers today. It was good to be in a physical space with other Catholics, great speakers, Religious Sisters and Brothers who were a source of joy and with holy priests who weren’t afraid to speak the truth. Compared to being relegated now to blogs, I miss the personal touch. I do encourage fellow Catholics to attend any real life Catholic event that you can as it makes a difference.

The difference came upon me at that particular Rosary Congress (at Catholic University) when a parish priest from the Diocese of Arlington, Virginia got up to speak. There were much more famous people there but this priest brought down the house.

He took questions from the audience (unusual) and one question asked was this, “Father, how do I decide how to vote?”

The priest paused looked down for one second and then straight out at the crowd.

“Catholics, hold the Crucifix in one hand & vote with the other! “

He received a standing ovation for what seemed an eternity… That was in 1994…during the Clinton years, when priests didn’t say things like that.

Thank you Father for that lesson well learned years ago…

Today I am going across the street and I will vote for Governor Romney. It has not been an easy decision since Romney was not my first choice, Rick Santorum was. Rick Santorum endorsed Romney so I am more comfortable now.

Today I will hold a small Crucifix in my hand as I vote.

God love you,

Sofia

P.S. Sorry I haven’t posted lately as I have been helping my family back in Jersey as much as I can making phone calls, etc. I will have a piece posted on what’s happened later today… Thank you for all your prayers.
