Pope Francis says it well: a "good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of themselves, so that those who govern can govern well." This belief underlies the work that CACG does to equip lay Catholics with the resources necessary to promote the common good in their communities. That's why we have the Catholic daily roundup that you can sign up for here. In the first Catholic Daily Roundup, top stories include a voting guide from the American bishops, the Catholic angle to the midterm elections, and Pope Francis on evolution.
“I ask everyone with political responsibility to remember two things: human dignity and the common good.”--Pope Francis on Twitter
Today's Mass Readings: "And this is my prayer: that your love may increase ever more" (Philippians 10:9)
Four Days Left Until Election Day:
- American bishops' brief voting guide, Nuns on the Bus election resources and epic #NunsTrouble video
- Michael Sean Winters asks: is there a Catholic angle to the midterm elections?
- Polling and forecasts suggests that that the Republicans have a good shot of taking over the Senate (Washington Post, POLITICO, Nate Silver, et. al)
Pope Francis News:
- Pope Francis may believe in evolution, but he isn't the first pope to do so (Christopher Hale agrees)
- Pope Francis says caring for the poor doesn't make you a communist...but Rush Limbaugh would probably disagree.
- Pope Francis has won another award: hero of Elton John.
