Pray for May 9

3

In just 23 more days, we will have our general election. Unless something like a declaration of martial law, or the Commission on Elections declaring that it is, for some technical or force majeure reason, unable to conduct the elections, our general election as scheduled on May 9.

This is a general election because we will vote to elect officials of the executive branch of government and lawmakers in the legislative for all levels of government – national, provincial, and local, except for the barangay.

Aside from choosing who will be our Republic’s next President and Vice-President, we will also elect:

The 12 senators to replace the 12 outgoing ones in the Senate.

The 297 new congressmen (or congresswomen) who will form the House of Representatives.

All the governors, vice-governors, and the provincial board members of our 81 provinces.

All the mayors and vice-mayors for our 145 cities and our 1,489 municipalities.

All the city councilors and 11,924 town council members.

All the governors, vice-governors and all the 24 members of the regional assembly of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

In today’s Holy Mass or chapel or temple service that you go to, please pray for the May 9 elections.

Those who pray the Holy Rosary we urge to respond to the call made by Archbishop Socrates Villegas, of Lingayen-Dagupan, who is the current president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, for a Rosary Campaign for May 9.

Archbishop Soc’s call
This is his call:

“Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war,

“With the Cross of Jesus going on before….

“With these words, I plead with you to join the Catholic faithful in Lingayen, Dagupan and throughout the nation in a rosary prayer campaign from today until our local and national elections on May 9.

“Blessed Pius IX said ‘If I had an army to pray the rosary, I could conquer the world.’

“It was not courage, not arms, not leaders but Mary of the Rosary that made us victorious,” said the Venetian senators after the Battle of Lepanto.

“The rosary is the weapon of our times according to San Padre Pio. And centuries ago, Pope Adrian VI said the rosary is the scourge of the devil.

“In my pastoral guidelines for the 2013 elections, I reminded you of the unique importance of prayer for national change. Our best contribution is to pray that the Lord of History guide every voter and guide every candidate. It is God who can enlighten our decisions. It is God who can thwart the plans of evil men and women to destroy social order. It is God who can give us the best leaders for the good of everyone.

“Pray ALL the mysteries of joy, light, sorrow and glory EVERYDAY until May 9. Pray as a family. Pray while traveling. Pray in the offices or factories. Pray everywhere for our national elections.

“By the power of the rosary, we can stop the evil of election violence and cheating.

“By the power of the rosary, we can win the battle for peaceful and credible elections.

“By the power of the rosary, we can fight stubbornness, cynicism and stupidity in making our choices. Let the rosary melt our hardened hearts and arrogant lips.

“By the power of the rosary, we can crush the devil’s head and let the Lord of History reign in our beautiful land.

“Pray the rosary for our national elections.

“Pass on this invitation and let us fill the Philippines with the light and power of the HOLY ROSARY!”

    • What is this all about? I thought comments are moderated or analyzed before they are published

  2. A picture of Malacanang with the banner, “Welcome Communists.” is more appropriate. With this, Filipinos really need to pray and ask the Lord to prevent it from happening.
