This Election Year

This year's race for the Presidency of the United States — primaries, nomination outcomes and the soon to get seriously underway general election — have caused me more angst than the usual elections do.  St Joan Chittister, OSB, has written an article on the lack of leadership in this election cycle; you can read it here. I have often prayed her Prayer for Leadership, one of whose stanzas goes like this:


Give us insight enough ourselves
to choose as leaders those who can tell
strength from power,
growth from greed,
leaership from dominance,
and real greatness from the trappings of grandiosity.
