As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ... It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, S.J.

God of Heaven and Earth, we give You thanks for giving us another day.


We ask Your blessing upon the Members of the Peoples’ House during these opening days of the First Session of the 113th Congress.


Bless the Members of this Assembly with Wisdom; inspire them to act with Justice, and empower them to work toward legislative solutions to the many challenges facing our nation.


Bless all the people of our nation as they return to their homes following the celebrations of the past few days. May the work of their hands issue forth to the betterment of their own lives and the strength and vitality of their communities.


And may all that is done this day be for your greater honor and glory.

Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what this great country was Built on The Holy Bible and belief in GOD!
