A Country Desperately In Need Of Prayer

Today Patriot Day, 9/11/13, hundreds of people attend a memorial mass for the victims of 9/11 in my parish. Many wore red, white and blue or FDNY T-shirts. All showed their patriotism and that is good but what about tomorrow and the next day; where will they be?
It is good to wear the colors or wave the flag but the most patriotic thing we can do is pray for our country. We are a country desperately in need of prayer, serious daily prayer.
Almost any way you look at it this country is worse off than it was 9/10/01. Our military has been drained by two wars. In 2001 the economy was booming and we were cutting taxes because of a budget surplus. In recent years we have been hit by an incredible number of natural disasters, tornadoes, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes and floods. Can anyone question if our morals have gotten worse since 2001?
Be a real patriot. Pray for our country. Pray for its conversion. Pray for revival.
