“Moreover, you have endurance and have suffered for my name, and you have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.” (Revelation 2:2-5, NAB, from the USCCB)
Divine Lord Jesus Christ, Whose Lordship is acknowledged in Ireland’s Constitution, grant that the Irish people may renew their Catholic Faith, so that, having voted against the enemies of children in the womb, they may also reject married sodomy and remarried adultery, and regain their world-conquering zeal for truth. From the serpents of secularism, oh, Lord, deliver them!
