Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will have their fill.  – Mt 5:6

Reflection.  Abraham Lincoln kept our nation together with words of wisdom like these:  “If the union of these States, and the liberties of these people be lost, it is but little to any one man … but a great deal to millions of others, and to their posterity.”  Now we can thank God we stood the course, but then the Civil War seemed so wasteful.

Prayer.  Grant me, Lord, the wisdom to know Your Will.
