Prayer for our Nation

Prayer for our Nation

God our Father,
Giver of Life, Mercy, Love, and Blessings, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.
You are the rock on which this nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation's leaders.
Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human and religious freedom.
Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to embrace the "Culture of Life" and may there be respect for the individual person, the sacredness of each person’s life, and their God-given dignity through all the stages of life.
Lead us into a new millennium of life, love, compassion, and mercy.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Be a Faithful Citizen - Prepare to Vote on Election Day

Be a Faithful Citizen
Prepare to Vote on Election Day
As Catholics, we are part of a community with profound teachings that help us consider challenges in public life, contribute to greater justice and peace for all people, and evaluate policy positions, party platforms, and candidates’ promises and actions in light of the Gospel in order to help build a better world.
In that spirit, we have compiled a series of resources to help to educate you about some of the topics of import to Catholics. The Diocese of Harrisburg neither supports nor opposes any candidate for public office.
