We put our faith in action in the way we vote with an informed conscience of the principles in Laudato Si` and Catholic Social Teaching. Respecting Dignity of Human Life encompasses human rights in feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, visiting the sick, policies for health care, refugees, immigration, prison reform, racism and the seamless garment of life.
The U.S. Bishops call Catholics to “apply a consistent moral framework to issues facing the nation and world” and “shape their choices in elections in the light of Catholic Social Teaching.” Just as St. Francis of Assisi demonstrated throughout his life, we too must put our love into action. Ahead of the November 3 U.S. election, pledge to enact love and vote informed by the fullness of Catholic Social Teaching.
“I pledge to vote with love in action in mind so as to protect life, respect human dignity, and promote the common good, including God’s gift of creation.”
