Faithful Citizenship Catholic Voting Guides
"What are humans that you are mindful of them?... You have given them rule over the works of your hands." Ps 8
With the election coming up, we are providing resources to help you form your conscience and prepare to vote. It is our civic duty, as citizens and as Catholic Christians, to help shape our society, and voting is a critical part of that.
We have two handouts produced by our bishops, titled The Challenge of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship (in two parts), which will be included in the bulletin the next couple weekends. They are also available in the kiosk in the commons.
Also, the Virginia Catholic Conference has some useful resources, including principles of Catholic Social Teaching and a candidate survey, on their website, www.vacatholic.org. Bishop DiLorenzo and Bishop Loverde of Arlington will be producing a video message as well in the coming weeks.
Please note, these are the only election resources that have been approved by our bishops. All other resources, even if they come from Catholic sources, should be seen as unofficial.
Let us pray for each other and our country,
