One thing parishes can do to prepare their people for the elections is to offer a study of the US Bishops’ document Living the Gospel of Life. Priests for Life has prepared a study guide on this document, in which the bishops indicate why Catholics need to take part in our nation’s elections, how they are to evaluate the candidates, and what issues matter the most.
They also give some very clear and strong guidance to Catholic public officials who say they believe what the Church teaches but at the same time fail to protect the most vulnerable human lives from the violence of abortion. In his recent book, Archbishop Chaput says this document is the best statement of the bishops on political responsibility. Find out more at priestsforlife.org.
