CONGRESS: Take a lesson from the cardinals

Congratulations to the Catholic Church, whose 115 cardinals representing 157 countries with many cultural and language differences were able to select a leader in less than two days to serve more than a billion members.

Compare that accomplishment to a single country, with a highly paid Congress that has approval ratings at a record low, which cannot agree or get anything done for the people for whom they were elected to represent.

It makes one wonder about the power of prayer and serving one God as opposed to these officials serving their corporate and special interest “gods.” Maybe a little less ego and more humility and prayer and they too could be recognized as leaders fulfilling the mission they were sent to do.
