This came to our attention in the form of a press release:
Wyoming Catholic College Students Begin Election Vigil
Tonight, immediately following the evening Mass, the students of Wyoming Catholic College will begin — at their request — an All-Night Vigil of Eucharistic Adoration for our nation and for tomorrow’s election.
Please join with us in asking for the special intercession of our Patroness, Mary, Seat of Wisdom, on behalf of our nation and our nation’s leaders:
O Blessed Mother, please bring these election prayers to the throne of God.
I ask for the eyes to see others as sons and daughters of God. I ask for help in forming my conscience according to the Gospel so that I may both vote and act for the common good.
Give me the courage to stand up for the weakest members of society: the poor, the weak, and the unborn. Give me the courage to re-examine my political loyalties and to be first a faithful follower of Jesus.
Remind me that my only true hope is in Jesus and that political power can never replace the will of God and the mission of the Church.
For my own vote, help me to cast it in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Help me to do it reverently and with a well-formed conscience.
For these elections, please bless us with the best leaders possible at all levels of government. My vote is a small but important part of my Christian life. Help me to both vote and live by the Gospel putting my trust in Jesus alone.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, intercede for me!
Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!
