I discovered today that the National Front* have put a candidate up in my constituency in the General Election. This is the group that you join if you’re a bit too racist and violent for the BNP to take you as a member.
And so it’s time to dig this up from the archives. I’ll be praying it every day from now until May 6th.
To you, Saint Martin de Porres, we prayerfully lift up our hearts, filled with serene confidence and devotion. Mindful of your unbounded and helpful charity to all levels of society and also of your meekness and humility of heart, we offer our petitions to you. Pour out upon our families the precious gifts of your solicitous and generous intercession; show to the people of every race and every colour the paths of unity and of justice; implore from our Father in heaven the coming of his kingdom, so that through mutual benevolence in God, men may increase the fruits of grace and merit the rewards of eternal life. Amen.
