The Church’s gospel reading for Sunday, January 29th states:
“Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.” 1 Corinthians 1:27
Today is the day after the March for Life in Washington D.C. and I could not but smile when I heard these words tonight at Mass. God did bless our nation when he allowed those who consider themselves ‘wise’, those who consider themselves to ‘powerful’ to be completed surprised by those they deemed the ‘deplorables’.
Those who voted to elect President Trump and Vice President Pence, both of whom are Pro-Life and proud of it, were considered deplorables in the eyes of the wealthy elites and self-described wise men and women of the intelligentsia.
And many of these deplorables were in D.C. marching, joining hands, to give voice to the voiceless.
It is fitting I believe for the gospel reading this weekend to be so.
May God bless our country and may He continue to bless the most innocent among us.
