I Voted! Did You?

by Josée
Today is General Election Day in Canada. Everyone who can, should exercise their right to vote. I’m not going to promote any particular party but I will offer a resource that was released by that the Conference of Canadian Catholic Bishop: 2011 Federal Election Guide: Making Our Voices Heard.

“Exercising the right to vote means making enlightened and well-thought-out judgments about the choices available. There are times, however, when these choices may prove very difficult. The Church reminds us that “in this context, it must be noted also that a well-formed Christian conscience does not permit one to vote for a political program or an individual law in which the fundamental content of faith and morals is replaced by the introduction of proposals differing from this content or opposing it.” Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Doctrinal Note: On Some Questions Regarding the Participation of Catholics in Political Life, no. 4. See also the Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2242
