“It is also the duty of the laity to participate actively in political life, in a manner coherent with the teaching of the Church, bringing their well- founded reasoning and great ideals into the democratic debate, and into the search for a broad consensus among everyone who cares about the defense of life and freedom, the protection of truth and the good of the family, solidarity with the needy, and the vital search for the common good.”
Pope Benedict XVI to the Pontifical Council of the Laity during the “Witnesses to Christ in the political community” gathering – May 21, 2010
Watch this special video message from Catholic Advocate President Deal Hudson:
At Catholic Advocate, with our affiliated organizations Catholic Advocate Voice and the Catholic Advocate Candidate Fund, we engage and encourage faithful Catholics to actively participate in the political process to support elected officials and policies that remain consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Increasingly, Members of Congress are deliberately, or innocently, voting against the issues and values of importance to faithful Catholics.
• Who is directly, consistently, and effectively talking to Congress?
• Who is equipping Members and their staff with what they need to know about voting in communion with their faith?
This is YOUR chance to join us.
It is no longer enough to be “part of the debate” to be effective.
We are a community for faithful Catholics to have a greater influence on policy in Washington, D.C.
Faithful Catholics need to speak out and be heard!
