From the Time Magazine Political Blog:
Amongst the things that Barack Obama carries for good luck are a bracelet belonging to a soldier deployed in Iraq, a gamblers lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and a tiny Madonna and child.Take note....that is the Miraculous Medal at the top-right of the cluster. In addition there is a medal of the Madonna and Child.
How ironic that the most pro-abort president in history should have in his pocket, a medal bearing the Immaculate Conception.
Fr. Z publishes thoughts from the reader who emailed him on this issue:
I have been suggesting to friends that we should all be praying to Our Blessed Mother for his conversion of heart on Matters of Life. In particular, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!"I thought maybe this is something you may want to post, especially in light of the upcoming battle on FOCA and the recent funding of international abortions.
Good advice. Let's pray....hard.

And, a hat-tip to "Peregrinus", who brought this to my attention today.
Te Deum Laudamus! Home
The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
