The Hawaii Catholic Herald in Honolulu has posted “An Island blessing for our new president” based partly on the fact that President Obama is the first native son of the state to become president. Editor Patrick Downes explained to us that the prayer is meant for a Hawaiian audience, so some readers won’t understand all the references or words. Still, you may enjoy reading the litany of hopes and prayers from Hawaii for our new president.
