“Faithful Christians have a duty to participate in society … by voting so that they may advance the common good. And this duty must be taken seriously by Christians” (Bishop Elio Sgreccia, Vice-President of the Pontifical Academy for Life, The Vatican).
Reflection: The Lord does not save us in isolation, but in community, and commands us to seek the good of the community in which we live. Participation in the processes of civic society simply reflects the solidarity God calls us to have with others, rooted in the call to justice, love, and service.
Prayer: Father, You bring Your people together. Help me respond by full participation in civic life. Amen.
