The Pope visits our country and hope for peace rises. The candidates for President challenge us to believe that they can bring peace through soft, hard, or soft-hard power. Jesus reminds us in His model prayer that we need to keep asking His Father to bring the true Kingdom of Peace.  It’s the Antichrist who promises peace through human expertise, know-how, and effort. This brings not the Kingdom of Peace but the Kingdom of Murder and Death. Jesus challenges us to humbly stay down on our knees and to keep praying for His Kingdom to come, for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. We need to be careful not to fall into the idolatry of worshiping a kingdom that is built on military power, material might, and human brain power, a kingdom that worships Wall Street, the Pentagon, and the Ivy League, but forgets to be humble before the Living God.  It's time to pray.
