During an interview with EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo, Sen. Marco Rubio explained that the result of his  efforts on immigration reform was ultimately a result of God’s will.

Arroyo asked Rubio if the immigration bill was the product of his Catholic faith.

“When you ask about my faith, look my faith tells me that God has a plan for all of us and our job is to cooperate with that plan, to have faith, to do what we believe our conscience tells us is right, and let the chips fall where they may,” he said. “So at the end of the day, what’s going to happen here is God’s will, that’s always going to happen.”

Rubio added that going forward it was just a question of him continuing to cooperate in a spirit of faith rather than chartering his own course.

“You know, that’s not just the story with immigration reform, that’s the story of our life,” he continued. “That’s truly the purpose of our life is to be the best version of ourselves that we can be, to be who God created us to be. And that requires us to have faith that if you do the right thing, God’s plan is going to work out.”
