Traveling to the Bible Belt, I heard a most beautiful and entrancing litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary on an Ohio radio station, the Sunday afternoon following Thanksgiving of 2016. The voices held me captive as I drove through a massive wind farm, fighting against becoming entirely mesmerized by the pairing of the liturgy and larger than life wind turbines hypnotically swirling with the landscape like an evenly spaced out congregation in white robes, emulating a choir of crosses thrust into the heartland. The current political and cultural climate of the United States is in a way, stuck in limbo as we await the official appointment of our new President-Elect, leaving our country more divisive and divided than we have been for many decades. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are, one thing I think we can all agree on is that we need forgiveness and understanding. We need someone to pray for us.
