Pray for what?
That Catholics or the Catholic Church would have no political influence?
I agree, they don't.
Yet, I know what YOU want and what you really are praying for!
You and your ilk should have no political influence either.

RE: Catholic Social Teaching and the political left
..... In the US the political Left wants help people who need and want help, and they want others to pay for that, while the political right refuses to help those people. Trying to help all those people would be like trying to fill an almost bottomless pit and there would never be enough money available to do that.
..... As I remembers it, Jesus helped many people, but ONLY THOSE who deserved such help. His Kingdom of God, a number of artificial "families", included ONLY THOSE who always did what God wanted them to do, and who NEVER did what God did NOT wanted them to do.
..... And, as I keep repeating, per definition of the word, those are only Christians who follow the lifestyle of Jesus and ignore all of the teachings by others than Jesus. Too bad most of the Catholics are not, and will not be saved despite all that money Catholics donated to their churches/cathedrals for centuries. God cannot be bribed! Not even the pope is a Christian because his lifestyle is not like the lifestyle of Jesus, and he teaches things that were NOT parts of the teachings of Jesus.
