Prayers for Delaware & Minnesota (gay marriage)

Delaware just legalized gay marriage yesterday. Minnesota lawmakers will be voting tomorrow Thursday May 9th on a similar law. Please pray for these two states and the people that live there, also pray that there is still hope for Minnesota they have not voted yet.

Why is Homosexuality a sin again?

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell satan and the other evil spirits who prowl the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

Eternal Father, we come to Thee in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Thine Only-Begotten Son and our Risen Saviour. We ask Thee to unleash a copious outpouring of Thy Divine Grace upon our nation so that it may be brought to conversion and a truly Christian outlook. Grant to our lawmakers and government officials wisdom, understanding and right judgment so that they may reject the heresy of homosexual unions. Come to our aid in this desperate time, O Provident Father. We make our prayer with confidence, knowing that nothing is impossible with Thee. Amen

I pray for your intentions! :gopray:

Pater noster qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;
adveniat Regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a Malo. Amen
