Voting as a Person of Faith

Written on: February 11, 2020

The attached talk was given by Archbishop Robert McElroy of San Diego. We believe this is too important for anyone to to miss. Herein, he clearly explains the seriousness of our responsibility to vote with a well-informed conscience and the complexity of what that means:

For the disciple of Jesus Christ, voting is a sacred action. In the words of The Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, it touches “the crossroads where Christian life and conscience come into contact with the real world.” For this reason, it cannot be reduced to a logical set of propositions that yield a predetermined result in the selection of candidates.”

Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested in reading it. Bishop McElroy on voting with faith and a conscience
