MARIAN SYMPHONY NO. 14 / by Joseph Castorino


Mother of Our Savior, protect us from

  The clever plots of political putrefaction;

The disfigured face of evil is pasted over

  By the pretty mask of political correctness.


Please pray to our beloved Jesus for us,

  That goodness may reign in our land again;

May Christ refresh us with the cool water

  Of integrity in this dreary desert of doom.


Let not our adversaries tackle us with

  The blind-side blitz of deception;

Help us sprint into the end zone of truth

  With the power sweep of wisdom.


Guide those whom we elect to serve us,

  That their actions may please God;

Remind them of Judgment Day, that

  They may courageously choose life.
