“In the Catholic tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation in political life is a moral obligation.” Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship
By our Baptism, we become members of Christ’s body. We become Christ’s disciples, joining in his mission – to bring “good news to the poor, liberty to captives, new sight to the blind, and to set the downtrodden free.” We have a serious responsibility to form our consciences, in light of the teaching of Jesus Christ, to help us judge how to take action on behalf of the unborn, the poor and the vulnerable.
