WBN Joins In Non Nobis Domine

After the unlikely defeat (read butt-kicking) of Martha Coakley in Massachusetts by Republican Scott Brown, Democrats were forced to slow the freight train of the Senate health care bill to a virtual stop. The Senate version of the bill would have institutionalized taxpayer funded abortions nationwide.

Although the fight is not over, God has used the unlikeliest of instruments to gain this victory -- our own enemy, a pro-choice politician. Therefore, WBN joins Creative Minority Report and countless others in saying: Not to us, not to us, O Lord, but to Your Name give glory.

[CMR] In a way that seemed almost impossible, the entire battle has turned. I need not go into detail here, you all know the story. We understand that the war on life is far from over, but today, at least for a while, by the grace of God, we have avoided institutionalized and tax-payer funded abortion. There will be other battles and perhaps they will be very soon, but it is incumbent upon all of us to acknowledge the great miracle that we have witnessed and to thank God for delivering us from this evil.

So what I propose is that we Catholic, Christian, and pro-life bloggers everywhere give thanks to God by way publishing the Non Nobis in gratitude for this wondrous day.

Non nobis, non nobis, Domine
Sed nomini tuo da gloriam.

Not to us, not to us, o Lord,
But to your name give glory.
