Cardinal Dolan’s closing prayer at the Democratic National Convention: Did he just pray a pro-life/pro-traditional marriage prayer?
1:20 – “Thus do we praise you for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it. Life without which no other rights are secure. We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born that they may be welcomed and protected.”
This seems to be a prayer against abortion to which I say amen.
2:45 – “Show us anew that happiness is found only in respecting the laws of nature and of nature’s God. Empower us with your grace so that we might resist the temptation to replace the moral law with idols of our own making, or to remake those institutions you have given us for the nurturing of life and community.”
This seems to be a prayer against redefining marriage to which I say amen.
It wasn’t aired on major networks nor included in the DNC youtube page. What do you think about it?
