Catholic Medical Association Encourages Catholics to Pray Rosary in Midst of Election Controversy
Philadelphia, PA- November 5, 2020– The Catholic Medical Association is asking the faithful to pray a Novena or Rosary in the midst of controversy and confusion regarding the 2020 Presidential Election.
“No matter the outcome of the election, the Catholic Medical Association will continue to advocate for religious liberty, conscience protection, and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching in healthcare for our members and the dignity of their patients,” said CMA President, Dr. Michael Parker.
With many unknowns as the country awaits the final results of the election,the CMA asks Catholics around the country to join together in prayer for clarity and peace.
“As we pray the Holy Rosary for our nation at this critical time, let us offer it up in honor of Our Lady under her title of the Immaculate Conception since she is the patroness of our country. We ask her to place her holy mantle over our nation and to intercede that there be a just and peaceful resolution of the election and that we will have elected officials who support a culture of respect for all human lives, especially of children in the womb,” said Father Matthew Gutowski, CMA National Chaplain.
As CMA members know from their work as health care professionals, transparency is a key part of maintaining trust in relationships with patients.
“We know the election is in God’s hands and trust that He will deliver a just outcome,” added Dr. Parker.
