They’re declaring Obama’s victory.  McCain has conceded.  It seems so early… is it really over already?

Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from us; still, not our will but Yours be done.

And please, do send Your holy angels to strengthen us.  We will need it, for a long, steep, arduous journey is beginning, and our crosses are bound to be heavy.

St. Michael the Archangel, protect us.

Immaculate Conception and Queen of Victory, pray for us.

Our Lord and our God, have mercy on us.
