"In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation. This obligation is rooted in our baptismal commitment to follow Jesus Christ and to bear Christian witness in all we do. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us, 'It is necessary that all participate, each according to his position and role, in promoting the common good. This obligation is inherent in the dignity of the human person. . . . As far as possible citizens should take an active part in public life'. (nos. 1913-1915)."
Today is election day throughout the state. Those of you who registered are urged to be responsible and vote today.
The state asks participants to choose a party for this election so it may make the voting process a tad difficult. But, regardless, vote! And if you're like me, PRAY AND THEN VOTE!
And maybe take a shower afterward....
