Pause, Reflect, Pray

Our mornings tend to be a bit busy.  Getting five kids up and out the door takes some time.  When I return back home, I get started on some house chores or get some writing done.  This morning, after dropping the kids to school, I didn't get started on my day's activities.  I took time to pause and to instantly pray.  

One of the kids left this holy card at the breakfast table.  It's a bit tattered, but it's because the kids use it when they pray.  On the reverse side is the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us!
Reading the news has left me speechless several times in the last few weeks.  I honestly cannot believe what I'm seeing.  

It began with measles mania.  

Which prompted vicious pro-vaccine campaigns.  

That lead to blaming and insulting the vaccine injured.  

Which somehow opened the door to vaccine mandates.  

And includes an aggressive adult vaccine schedule.  

That's all happened so quickly.  I can't help but feel a bit overwhelmed.  I can't help but think there's some evil behind it.  And I can't help but feel like most of it's been orchestrated too. 

Our rights are being jeopardized.  Our personal health care needs may soon be too.  If those in power continue to trample on our freedoms, it's going to take a miracle to make them stop.  Miracles and prayer go hand-in-hand.  So, today, when I saw that holy card, I stopped in my tracks.  I reflected on a few things.  Then I prayed.  I plan on praying all day today.  And again tomorrow.  And the next day too.  Join me if you'd like.  

St. Michael, the Archangel,
Defend us in battle,
Be our protection against the
 wickendess and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray;
and do thou, 
O Prince of the Heavenly host,
by the power of God,
cast into hell Satan 
and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world 
seeking the ruin of souls.
