season is upon us, and soon it will be Election Day. Christ is not a political
leader, and it is crucially important to remember our faith does not depend on
But we must also recognize that our
faith gives us the impetus to work for justice in every aspect of our lives,
an important balance to strike. We must never politicize our faith, as if being
liberal or conservative were somehow more defining than being Catholic ? but we
also must take care not to domesticate our faith into a private matter that
comfortably avoids public and political expression.
The Register will bring you
resources to use as we prepare for the election. This week I wanted to draw
your attention to the Priests for Life updated website. It is now much easier
to find their election 2008 resources ? which include prayer resources, voter
guides and information on how to register fellow pro-lifers to vote.
PriestsforLife.org is the website. Visit tosee what
they have to offer.
